TEMODOR FOR THREE YEARS

Husband Jack had a IV GBM removed three years ago and is thriving after enduring radiation and Temodor for three years.  Question:  Have any others endured two or more years of Temodor?  Jack is 64 and continues to work, although the side-effect has been some nerve damage and pain and discomfort from same for which Jack takes meds which provide some relief.  Thanks for any feedback.  Loyce!

I have been treated for stage 4 GBM for two years.  I'm a 45 y.o. female, I was told my chances are not good.  Unlike most, I did not tolerate the temodar well. I had lots of side effects (mostly nausea, fatigue, anxiety, clinical depression)  I also had whole brain radiation.  The tumor did start to grow after I stopped temodar, so now they've put me on IV chemo, Avastin with cpt-11.  Duke University has some very hopeful studies with that.

For help with the temodar side effects, they gave me valium for sleep and anxiety, an antidepressant, and Vicodin for muscle pain.  I tried to work for a bit a year into treatment but felt way too tired and still scared and dizzy (I'm a clinical social worker, and do therapy with individuals and groups.  Now with the IV chemo I pray it works, but I feel even worse side effects. I'd love to hear if other GBM survivors had had Avastin.
thanks,
Tara
