Hello everyone

I have a grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma & I've nearly finished a year's course of Temodal drug therapy.

Lucky to be fit & well & no symptoms. 

Anyone taking Temodal too?

Hi,

Temodal is very common lots of people take it, and from what I know it is mostly well tolerated. There are exceptions of course.

Usually they give radiation and 6 months temozolomide (Temodal or Temodar in the US), have you done radio yet and how did you manage/arrange to do a year's chemo?

all the best
