Re: Brain Cancer
I am sorry to hear about your father. Is he in the hospital or at home Hon?
My husband had grade 2 ependymoma located in left frontal temporal region. It settled on his speech center, which means we can't communicate much at all. He has had 2 surgeries, 31 rounds of radiation, oral chemo called Temodar. He's doing great! Been told he is in complete remission. Although this was low grade tumor and remission is good, we are talking about the brain, radiologist/oncologist told us it should be referred to as brain cancer. It's not like they can cut out the organ that the tumor is in ... so ... it's a really lousy form of cancer to get ... but, of course, as you know, all cancer is really lousy!
I can't imagine the doctors not being able to find a primary tumor location. It sounds like your father is very, very ill, for he is not able to eat. What are they doing to help him Hon? Please stay in touch and let us know what's going on.
