Hi Buster. Thanks for your reply. I'm so sorry for your news. I'll be adding you to my prayers! I'm still new to all of this craziness and am still trying to learn all that I can... are there any clinical trials available near you that you could be eligible for? I really hope so. I'm rooting for you!

There are so many variables with this disease that I expect you will get all sorts of answers re: prognosis.  You did not mention where your tumor was located, but that can be one of the variables. Your age and general health is also an important variable. My dh was diag in May 2004 and was told 1-2 years prognosis. He is still doing well, still drives, walks / jogs in the neighborhood and sometimes you would never know he has GBM IV. He is sometimes confused, and has short term memory loss. He naps alot and has lost some strength and balance.  After he finished radx and 6 months of Temodar he went a long while with no symptoms and no deficits. When he had recurrence in 2006 the oncologist said there was no other treatments available. Then we went to a neuro oncologist and dh has since had several different treatments. 

Keep asking questions,

Good luck,
