Hi. I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma last Monday after the results came back from the tumor that Royal Brisbane Hospital took out earlier last week. Looks like the op went OK. I'm home now, waiting.... I'll go onto chemo (Temozolomide) and radiation as soon as they are ready. I've got interviews next week with the radio and chemo oncologists and I guess it all starts soon after that. I had the radio initial interview on Monday so I know it's 6 weeks of Mon-Fri radio (30 sessions). With the Chemo I don't know the regime yet. I'm scared out of my head and working to deal with it all + starting to get superannuation and work leave sorted. I never considered myself mentally strong or physically brave so I'm wondering what the whole treatment process will look like. My wife is my primary carer and I am concerned that this will be too much for her as our kids are in high school and we were flat out keeping up with everything before all this started. Sorry that the above is a bit long but I found this site and wanted to learn from others' experiences.
