Thank you for the link...anything like this can be helpful especially since month to month meds and symptoms can change for him. I have called the Neurologist and Oncologist to ask them what each has listed as their tumor grade. I'm still waiting for a return call :( The last series of seizures that Micah had..the neuro. ugraded his tumor from Astrocytoma grade 2 or 3 to GBM, my question is whether this can be done without another biopsy or can it be done based solely on increasing seizure symptoms.
I 'feel' the doctors (neuro and oncol) don't think it is as important to grade the tumor as it is to treat the tumor aggresively. But I feel that the doctors should be on the same page since they work hand in hand with one another to treat Micahs tumor and resulting tumors.
One other thing I would like to ask is - when seizures occur after the resections, is it still considered epilepsy?
