      Mtindall6, in a word, yes! I googled glioblastoma survivors and there were plenty of good hits. It is tough diagnosis, but there is real hope. When you are ready for the good and the clinically not good, hit the Internet. There is a world of info out there. Make notes, keep up with the web site addresses and, then, talk with your dr and other survivors so that you are in the right place in your head. Wishing you the best and keep posting.

      Yes, more than you would think. Read the story of UCLA professor Ben Williams or watch the documentary on YouTube called, Hannah's anecdote. Both stories will amaze you. Best of luck, Carm RN.

      The doctors told my husband that he had 10 months to live. He almost made it 5 years. My husband said he didn't want to die because he would miss me and the children so much. I believe that's what kept him going. God Bless you and may you live a long time

      Thank you so much for the comments. I have another question: My Temodar Chemotheropy pills haven't arrived in time for my scheduled radiation therapy. Can I begin radiation in advance of starting my Chemo therapy or will they delay the radiation session until I can take the Chemo treatment at the same time?

      Temodar tends to enhance the effect of the radiation. However, that being said, you might want to at least alert the rad onc and let him make that call.

      watch it with that pill schedule.i had a bad experience when it wasn't fully explained to me and I overdosed. You can imagine...stay strong. I have the same cancer undergoing chemo after 6 weeks of radiation so I feel you. My best advice is do things that make you happy spoil y9ourself let others help you, keep a smile on your face even when you don't want to.Its a psychological fact, smiling always help improve. A tip? put a pen horizontally in your mouth, to wear as if itwere almost a smile, doing that is proven and I can attest to that, that it does work.
