After waking up early hours Friday morning with alot of pressure in both and eyes and and a throbbing head. I managed to go and have chemo and radiotherapy,  5 mins after still felt horrendous.  Then the sickness begun. So after having observations etc and a CT Scan,  they confirmed there was a bleed. 

So still here now this lovely Sunday afternoon, awaiting an MRI scan tomorrow to find out what's happening. Wether the radiotherapy has caused inflammation and bleed, or the stubborn GBM has grown /spread and is being generally naughty. Has anybody had anything similar happen. 

  • HI Chris

    sorry to hear this. A GBM journey is an emotional rollercoaster ride. They impact everyone differently and don't always behave the same way for different people. Sounds as though you are in the safest place til they get to the bottom of what's causing the current symptoms. Hope the MRI goes smoothly.

    sending love and light and hugs and lots of positive energy
