My wife has just been prescribed Temodar to address some brain tumors brought on from her small cell lung cancer. She already completed whole brain radiation about 18 mnths ago and a gamma knife procedure i Mid Sept which hit 10 tumors in her brain. The Temodar is planned to be used to attack the four tumors which survived the Gamma Knife. The tumors now have a large amount of swelling which have presented several CVA like symptoms. No radiation can be performed ow due to history. Is this a workable treatment or are we just shooting in the dark and hope this will help?
Hi Thanks for your query. I feel that the disease has now progressed significantly and we are just looking at palliative care. Temodar can result in responses but in very few patients. Expected life expectancy is unfortunately quite low. Hope this helps. Regards
