Tumor has come back in brain, fighting with IV infusions of Avastin

Posted by bjh369 @bjh369, Sun, Oct 27 11:10am

Fighting my brain cancer now with Avastin and doc will add back in Tramazolomide.

@bjh369, I'm sorry to hear that the glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) has returned. I'm bringing @marcyprof @nursnis and@amherst into this discussion.

As you prepare for new treatment with Avastin (bevacizumab), I thought you might appreciate this indepth Avastin FAQ document from the National Brain Tumor Society http://blog.braintumor.org/files/public-docs/avastin-web-faqs-and-overview-final.pdf

When do you start the IV infusions?

Thank you very much for the information. I appreciate it.

So far brain swelling is down and no bleeding in brain. That is good.:)

Pressure is off brain so no more headaches and doctor Mrugala says no bleeding in the brain so that is good.

That sounds like great news, @bjh369. How often are you taking Avastin?

Thinking of you for your appointment tomorrow, @bjh369. Rest well.

Got bloodwork at Mayo Clinic Chandler which made sense at least because the clinic is just down the road from us and Mayo Clinic Phoenix is 60 miles away. So that was nice and Dr Mrugala will go over the bloodwork with me tomorrow to see how I'm tolerating all this chemo…..
