Saw him today. Interestingly enough he reserved a whole of hour of his time for Bob and me. He has a fellowship in brain tumors and seems to be up to date on latest therapies. Cutting to the quick, he explained that the follow up is necessary because microscopic remnants of the tumor are probably there and will come back in 5 years or so unless something is done. The 'done' will be radiation for 6 weeks concurrently with drug called Temodar. The Dr. says this is the current way of handling all this with minimum side effects. I meet the radiation oncologist early next week to get all this started.
