My experience with antiplastic astrocytoma

Published on October 26, 2020 in Share Your Story

I was provided some options but was ultimately sent home.

In the days that followed I was really anxious about what was happening to me and suffered from high anxiety attacks that made me withdraw from contact with everyone.

I discussed my options with several people including my family doctor and made the decision to have brain surgery to remove the tumor.

On May 6, 1994 at 10am I underwent brain surgery a tumor in the right front lobe and they removed all of it.

After pathology reports came back they said it was antiplastic astrocytoma and I began chemo and radiation treatments concurrently. It turned out that the aggressive treatment plan with radiation and chemo therapy was right.
