My mom just finished treatment with radiation and temezolomide. Her left tumor has disappeared in the middle and necrosis is present. The perimeter is recurring and crossing over the center of the brain.
She does not want to do chemo anymore and is otherwise healthy. Her blood work always comes normal. I have her on flax seed oil and cottage cheese for cell strength. She is getting tired of eating it. She started that 3months before radiation and chemo. Her oncologist said there was no more they could do if she didn't want to chemo. The chemo has taken such a toll on her. Being in Canada wanting to explore DCA. Have purchased it and wondering if safe to administer to her. I started to talk to her about and it seems interesting.
She is otherwise very healthy and thought that perhaps she would be a good candidate. She weighs about 41kg. she has lost a few since she quite the chemo.
She is beginningn to have difficulty talking. She regained her ability to talk after initial treatment.
ANy thoughts from anyone would be helpful.October 26, 2012 at 9:35 pm #4746
Sorry but I don't have anything to offer re DCA. Fastest way to get info is to do a search on glioblastoma or perhaps brain in past topics (see search box upper right). Also click on DCA Chat Room and go to the DCA Forum Archives and do the same thing. Many more years of posts there.October 26, 2012 at 9:56 pm #4747
P.S. I don't know much about glioblastoma specifically, but these articles I have bookmarked during past research might be useful. the first is on DCA, the rest are about other potential drugs or supplements that you could look into.
