For those of you who don't know, my 49yo brother became ill with headaches & loss of memory suddenly in Sept 2010, and was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. He was given 3 months to live if those chose no treatment. And with allopathic treatments (ie, rad & chemo) he was given a 50% chance to survive 12-14 months.
He had brain surgery in Oct, took radiation along with chemo until Christmas, and has been taking rounds of chemo since then.
His recent CT-scan says "there is no residual sign of the tumour".
We are thrilled at this news.
He does not feel well. He continues on with chemo for another 4 rounds.
He suffers with his memory and cognitive abilities, besides other things. But I suppose, what does one expect when you've had brain surgery, been bombarded with radiation and ingest chemotherapy?
Their family is "cautiously optimistic".
