Malignant brain tumour

Hello this is my first post & is about my husband. He was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour in February. He has had partial radiotherapy treatment but was told it wasn't working so it stopped. He hasn't been back to see the Oncologist as she has said there is no further treatment which will help. He suffers from memory loss (Short term wirse than long term) speech problems, mood swings, inability to read or use numbers. These symptoms come & go. We are trying to make most of our time & enjoy the good days. I try to remain positive but find it so hard at times. Can anyone give me any help in coping with this? I seem to make him angry at times as he can only cope with simple answers or questions. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

  • I am a miracle. I was saved by MPRI. Look it up on the internet. Midwest protonbeam radiation institute. It also saved my dads sister and she had / had a glastoma blioma. Extended both our lives. Wish you the best.

  • Sorry not to reply sooner but only just seen your post.. i lost my husband of 40 years to easophageal cancer with brain mets. the few months after it spread to his brain his memory speech and reading were not affected but his mobility and moods were very variable he fell down a lot and said some horrible things at times he was always sorry especially for being so dependant on me as the main carer . He didn't want people fussing and sympathising which is fine but meant i felt very alone sometimes .I hope you have plenty of help and support from friends and family .Take care take each day as it comes and make the most of the good days .Xxx Jan
