Sedih baca. :-( Dr i have a question to ask and hoping for ur advise. I ada close friend diagnose with a stage 2 brain canser just 3month after get married. Menurut Dr, tumor tu berada di bahagian paling penting otak and hardly can be remove. Cuma boleh keluarkan sebanyak mana yang mungkin. Dr bagi dia option sama ada kimo atau buat major operation to remove which can lead to lumpuh. Her husband ask me for opinion but seriously i pun tak tau. I felt sory for them. Inai masih ada kat jari kaki.
i felt sorry for ur friend
to be diagnosed with brain cancer ,
some said - it would be the end of the world
some said " my life is over "
off all cancer , brain cancer would be considered as the most fearful
as it could easily effect our mind , emotion , feeling , rational thinking...
all those stuff that u need to get thru ur life in order
u mentioned that ur friend is already at the stage ll
it's still an early stage
but we both not sure about the severity of her condition right
usually at stage ll
a patient could still have an active daily life
but the symptom occurs quite oftenly
in her case , symptoms could be severe headache and mood swing
in many case , at stage ll of cancer,
combination of surgery and chemotheraphy do produced a good result
nevertheless , these two methods also come with bad side effect
in her case ,
if surgical to be done , maybe a part of the brain need to be removed
and during chemotheraphy ...
other healthy brain cells will be dead as well resulting for the toxic effect of the chemo drugs
imagine if u only have half of ur brain
that's is one of the possibilities that could happen to her
we could treat the cancer ,
but her brain would be effected as well...
she could fight until the end... but it would be a difficult battle to win...
cancer always relapsed even if we defeated them once ....
