Waiting for pathology results from second brain tumor. Really nervous
I had a second brain tumor removed in my right frontal lobe. It grew back in a month and a half. I met with the may neuro team and radiation docs. They didn't have the pathology back. They say it looks like glioma. They are ruling out things in the staining they are doing. So, I wait. The docs couldn't give me answers last week. The radiation doc talked hypothetically about treatment.
My question is — can you live if you have brain cancer? I have known three people that have had brain cancer. They are not here anymore. So, I really am not sure if going through treatment will give me quality of life. I am not sure I want to go through radiation and fight through the side effects.
I went through chemo last year then had an amputation. I am RBKA. I didn't have quality of life as I fought through to save my leg. I can't imagine what radiation will do to my brain. It has been a long year.
