Hi, I am 77 years old and completed a 15 day radiation program and a 21 day Temodar135 mg concurrently. It took me nearly one month to recover my appetite and taste buds. Suffered fatigue etc. What led to my diagnosis was severe pain on my left side. They did an MRI/with contrast and discovered the one inch brain tumor.
My question is the NO is recommending a five day once per month maintenance Temodar program for one year. The starting dosage will be possibly twice as high.
I am considering not going ahead with the five day Temodar because of the side effects which will happen each month.
Has anyone felt the same? and if so what happened? or started the treatment and got ill and stopped?
