I am very confused after two discussions with my daughters NO regarding Avastin and am seeking opinions.
First discussion he said to try to get Avastin through insurance, this wasn't possible as not licensed in the UK for GBM.
So we said we would try to raise money to finance. NO then said he wouldn't use Avastin as her recurrence was diffuse and he didn't think it would work as well as it does for solid tumors or edema, and that it could make things worse.
He also said trials show it doesn't work with children or young adults.
We are now unsure weather to go ahead with Avastin or not? Where can you get impartial advice?
We know it isn't a cure and there are pros and cons like a lot of medications.
