Intraarterial Chemotherapy Info or Outcomes

My husband was diagnosed with Gbm stage4 two weeks ago. The tumor went from non-existent to several masses in the right paratelial lobe in 8 days.On 10/28 He had bumped his head and required staples, they gave him a CT scan just to play it safe and found nothing. A week later he had unbearable pain. We went back to the hospital on 11/8 where they did another ct and found the two masses. He underwent an emergency craniotomy. After the surgery it is amazing, aside from some weakness at times and pressure in his head. he seems fine. I can't understand how a man who looks this healthy only has 6 months to a year to live? He is undergoing intraarterial chemo. They only do this treatment in one place (Stony Brook University Medical Center, LI NY) But we had a second opinion over at Sloan-Kettering and they believe he would benefit more from Radiation treatment first with temidore. As it is less invasive and not as risky. Has anyone else gone through this intra coradid therapy? and how was your response. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
