    Hi Jenniferleigh my husband Barry was diagnosed with a Stage IV Glioblastoma in November last year. He's had surgery and is just coming to the end of 30 radiotherapy treatments with chemotherapy everyday for the 6 weeks. He'll have a rest for 4 weeks and then an MRI to see where we're at. Some days are lovely but most are a grind as he is extremely difficult. His horrible mood swings have calmed a little as his cort...

      Hi all, My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma last November. He's had surgery and is nearly at an end of his Chemoradiotherapy. He says he is feeling fatigued but other than a few hours sleep,at night(he was a night shift worker) he never rests. I will find him sitting up asleep at the computer but he is always on the go. He's just been taken completely off any cortisone so I wondered if it would eventu...

                Hi my husband was diagnosed in November 2015 with GBM. Ashes had surgery and is currently having Chemoradiotherapy. He's had to stop driving and working but is doing fantastically well in coping with all his treatment. My question and problem is that he is changed from the surgery. Sometimes the changes are subtle and others don't notice them other than our 2 daughters aged 24 and 25. He can be horrible critical and ...

                I'm in my mid 50's my husband was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Stage I V in November last year he's 56. He's had surgery and they got most of it it's in his Temporoparietal area. He's currently half way through radiotherapy with chemotherapy with Temizole 150mg once daily.Hes on Keppra 500mg twice daily and they are lowering his Dexamethsone dose. He's doing well and other than losing what hair he had and some fatigue is coping fantastically well with treatment. When this treatment is over he will have 4 weeks off before an MRI to assess if the cancer has been held at bay. After his surgery we had some issues and his short term memory has been slightly affected. This all sounds great except he's very hard to live with and can be really awful to myself and our 2 daughters one of whom is married. He's Mr Happy with most others but does have a really short fuse. I'm struggling as I have bi polar and anxiety n depression but am quite stable I still work 2 days a week. My husband is no longer able to drive so I am the driver. This too can cause friction. Well that's it I guess
