What are the chances of a second or third or more recurrences regarding GBM IV. My wife just went through her first recurrence. That is why I ask.

My mom had her first reoccurance in August of 2015 (in original cavity right frontal)...which was removed via neuroblate. She did ccnu after. She already has another reoccurance and will be having the same procedure done on Thursday this week. Not sure what the plan is yet for chemo. I'm going to ask about temodar tho, since she handled it well the first go around. This new one is in the right temporal. She's been fighting since January of 2013. Almost three years!! Google Cheryl broyles. She's been fighting GBM for 14 yrs I think...and has had I believe six reoccurances. She has a website all about her journey. She also will reply to emails if you have questions.

Thanks for the info. I will google Cheryl Broyl. Praying that God will steady the hands of the surgeons and also put His healing hands on her. God bless. Hope all goes well with this next procedure. My wife just had her second surgery and is starting temodar next Monday. It will be a lower dose taken daily than the monthly (5 on 23 off) dose she did during the first round. Thanks for the feedback. Take care will post again when something changes. 

Kindest Regards,

John
