Newly diagnosed with Glioblastoma25 Nov 2022 20:51
Back in June my dad had a stroke. He was on a life support machine but came out of it with no physical issues, just a few speach issues.
Over the last few weeks he has not been right. Has had headache's, struggles more getting out what he wants to say. In the past week or so developed a tremor. He was referred to the hospital and has been diagnosed with a aggressive Glioblastoma.
We have been told, they cannot operate, there is a possibility he could have chemo or radiotherapy to slow it it down. Or he could have the version where there are no treatment options. We are waiting for the panel to come up with a treatment plan. Which won't be for a few days.
But either way there is no cure.
He has been put on steroids in the mean time.
They have said they have been through is scans from back in June and there was definitely no sign of it then. Which is why they can say it's really aggressive and fast moving.
I just want to know, how our Dad is going to be? What changes are we really going to notice? What symptoms he may start showing.
We know it's different for everyone and we haven't been given much information as of yet. We just want some ideas of what we can expect that will happen next.
