    My husbands tumor was on the right side.  It was 99% removed.  Then he had a recurrance and it was removed.  He's been doing the 5 days on chemo (300 mg) a day and 23 days off.  He did this for 6 months.  He's off chemo and will start the Optune in June.  I'm hoping his quality of life improves.  He's very tired and sleeps a lot.

      I would love to keep in touch with you so we can compare notes.  He's been very weak lately.  He sees the oncologist June 8.  How is your husband doing so far.  I know it's a lot to take in.  I just try to stay positive.

        My husband will be using optune in June.  I would like to know how you are doing so far on optune.  I was impressed with the survival rate.  Optune doubles the 2 year survival rate and triples the 5 year survival.  Have you noticed it making your quality of life any better? Catherine M
