Stage 4 Glioblastoma

Stage 4 Glioblastoma

My mum was diagnosed with stage 4 Glioblastoma back in September last year. She has completed her 6 weeks of radiation and chemo and has now just started on her larger dose of chemo which is 5 days on and 3 weeks off. She got weaned of her Dex steroids but has deteriorated since coming off them. She has slurred speech, no balance and is sleeping all the time.

Re: Stage 4 Glioblastoma

Unfortunately the treatment hasn't worked and she may only have months to live.
