I am looking for information, too. My daughter had radiation for several brain lesions, including one in the thalamus, in the summer of 2009. The area in the thalamus started growing again, and in September of 2010 she had a biopsy which showed grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma. She is 28. She has multiple problems including tiredness, forgetfulness, incontinence, balance problems and the left side affected like a stroke. We, also, wonder what to expect. She had radiation in the past and chemotherapy in the past twice for an optic glioma, and her body did not respond well to chemotherapy. She was missing more chemo sessions that she was getting, because her counts were so low, so the chemo was finally discontinued after a blood transfusion (seems like she had two transfusions). We are using a lot of natural supplements, and her mind is more clear than before we started them.
I hope you get the information that will be helpful to you. Right now I have more questions than answers. I wish I had answers for you.
