My dad was diagnosed in January 2007, with glioblastoma (GBM). They did surgery on him at Methodist in Houston. The doctor told us it was cancer and that he had maybe two years. We never told him what the doctor said. We just told him it was cancer. He put up a fight. After the surgery he had no problems talking or walking. He came home about a week after surgery. When he started radiation and chemotherapy, he would come home every day and work outside. He didn't get sick except once after eating too much chocolate. I think that last day of radiation treatment got him. After that he lost his energy.
Four years after this all started, he is still fighting. The tumor has been stable. The doctors call him a miracle. He is now going to the VA. Methodist is an awesome hospital; the only reason he went to the VA is due to money. The VA has been great, too. He has had several surgeries since then, but nothing to do with the cancer. They are going to do a brain wave test to see if he can get off the seizure medicine since he is doing so well. He has a MRI everyone four months. The tumor is still stable. He is a strong, well man.
