We met with oncologist today following the MRI yesterday. It would appear that there is still an area of concern, but that remains unchanged since previous MRI in March - if anything swelling has reduced slightly which is a little contradicting given my husbands increased weakness on left side. Oncologist is of the opinion that there is more than likely tumour still present there and that may be accounting for the increased weakness.  His recommendations short term are as follows :- -Commence Temodal (5 day dose) -Increase dexa -Commence bactrum -Next consult with oncologist on June 3rd He did also speak with us regarding treatment of Avastin - I expect this will be an option if tumour is more evident on next MRI (due June 23rd) Our oncologist was great and answered all the questions we had - we actually expected that MRI would be inconclusive so will just see how things go !
