I'm new to this blog and would love to get some advice. My dad was diagnosed in December 2015 with a glioblastoma. Unfortunately it's inoperable because of it's location (corpus callosum). I've just read Ben William's book and I think it's very sensible to try the cocktail approach. He finished radiation plus Temodal and is now in his 5th cycle of Temodal. After the 6th cycle he'll be switched to metronomic Temodal. He also takes:
- dexamethadone 4mg/day
- D-L-methadone 1,75ml/2x day
- Heparine injections because of a thrombosis
- Keppra 500mg/2x day
He is also using Optune TTF. But there's more that we want to do. I'm very interested in DCA but worried if it might interact with the methadone. From what I've read online, he should start on a low dose and without caffeine as brain tumor patients can't seem to tolerate a higher dose. Do you think that we should give it a try? I think it's pretty hard to get...
Additionally we're considering the following:
- Melatonin plus Aloe Vera (again I'm worried because of the methadone as it makes him really tired)
- Fish oil (Omega 3)
It would be so helpful for us if you could give u your advice!
Thank you so much
