Let's beat cancer sooner

Glioblastoma

12 Feb 2018 07:30


Hi,

I had surgery in August to remove my Brain Cancer, since then I have had radiotherapy and been on chemotherapy. Last week had an MRI scan which has now shown a further growth and I am going today to discuss further surgery.

How come I have had further growth when the radiotherapy & chemotherapy are meant to limit this?

Really fed up now, was positive in August despite the negative feedback I was given saying even with the surgery you'll live for X, now I just feel like I should give up on my Chemotherapy and make the most of the time I have left?
