    Hello, I am so sorry to hear about your mom....someone shared a website with me that was helpful.  btbuddies.org      If you scroll down on the left side you will see palliative and hospice care.  Click there and you will see a section "progression of sysmptions.'  I hope this is helpful to you and your family.  Has your mom started hospice?

      Thank you so much for your reply, it's always nice to hear what others are doing.  My husband is taking the CBD oil as well.  Did your wife have any side effects from the immunotheropy? Thanks again, glad to hear your wife is doing well!

          Hello, my husband is a oligodendroglioma surivior that was originally diagnosed as a grade 2 and has advanced to grade 3 and now possibly grade 4.  He has had two surgeries, radiation twice, CCNU chemo and avastin infusions.  He recently made a turn and has lost a lot of mobility and strength on his left side.  There has been no clarification if the recent damage on his left side is from tumor growth o...

              My husband is the first patient where he is being seen that has had radiation for the second time.  He also did temador in 08-09.  I know it is so hard to know the right path to take. I will be praying for you and your daughter! All my best! Sue

                My husband is a 19 year survivor of a oligodendroglioma.  He had surgery in 98 that followed with radiation.  He had a second surgery in 2013 and IMRT radiation in 2014.  He now has 3 new areas they see that are concerns of eiher necrosis or possible tumor growth.  He did an MRI on Saturday as to find out more about these new areaa. I do see changes in my husbands personalilty and some c...

                  Ahhh I feel for you.  My husband was able to give himself the shots since I can not stand needles or the thought of using one.  I also started with the whole head congestion on Monday and thought my head was going to explode earlier today.  I called my doctor and they recommended Mucinex DM.  Give it a try, my head feels a little relief this evening. All my best to you and your husband!

                    My husband had a recent 2nd surgery for the recurrence of a grade 2 oligo in May 2013.  So far his MRI's have been stable with some flare they are watching.  I would love to hear from anyone who has gone through a second surgery and how they are doing or from a caregiver.  We feel fortunate that his tumor is still at a grade 2.  He has chosen to not do chemo.
