    Unfortunately I’m looking at the same situation with my wife. She was diagnosed in March, ran into so many complications. Three/four surgeries, massive infection just to name a few. She quit taking here pills about a month ago barely eats more than a half dozen bites a day. Is bed ridden, home health nurse three times a week. Has some alert days like today, but others just sleeps 20 hours. Earlier this week she began...

      We initially inquired about the Optune device during our radiation treatment. Wanting to ask questions I wrote the Optune makers, they called me back being snippy that I needed to ask my doctor those questions. Which I did, he had to contact the same people I wrote.

        I’ve been trying to get meds from our oncologist, neurosurgeons, and PCM. To help with my wife’s long list of neurological problems. Tremors, sleepiness, agitation, restlessness hallucinations etc etc etc... Finally we have an appointment with a neurologist on Tuesday. What kinds of meds has anyone else been prescribed for their family members?

I begged for an MRI but they wouldn't do it because they supposedly wouldn't be able to see anything. Well two weeks later she was falling took her to the ER. They took the MRI, the tumor had came back. We chose to have the reoccurance removed. That in retrospect became ...
