Hi and welcome.

 I have glioblastoma and had my first surgery November 2019. It went well. I have another one January 15 booked. Recovery is tiring so listen to your body. Rest is healing.

What tests have they done? I f there is swelling you need steroids to bring it down.   Swelling can make headaches worse. I’m on Dexamethasone.

Do they know what kind of tumour you have? I had 6 weeks of radiation and oral chemo every day for 6 weeks. After a month to recover (radiation is exhausting) I had a higher dose of the oral chemo once a month for 5 days. I did that for 6 months and then it was just MRIs to monitor things.

How are you feeling?
