• Advice?

    Asked by Coping15 on Sunday, November 16, 2014


    Hey I'm 17 and I'm looking for some positive advice. I was diagnosed just a few days ago with having a grade 3 astrocytoma in my hypothalamus. I will soon be undergoing treatment and if you have any advice please do give.

      I know it's easier said than done - but try not to think about it too much (or read too much!)
      I've been lucky enough to live a pretty 'normal' life since my diagnosis and I hope you can too!
      In saying that, remember that everyone has a different experience.

      Take a small recording device when you go to Docs Appointment and ask if it was ok to record the conversation....Very Good to Do.

      My doctor says she can't do radiation so she's doing nothing. I went for second opinion and all she did was increase steriods. Is this it?
