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?
Thanks so much for the info. Any info is always welcome.
You know I was told by a doctor friend of mine all cancer patients should be deformed…they say it has helped cancer patients in the UK. Have you ever head of this?
Go in the 12th for my 3rd infusion of Avastin and now back on tramamolizide. Bloodwork will be done on 12th so I hope body will tolerate medication.
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…..
