Report on my Fiancee -
She took 1st dose of Avastin, late July 2014, slept most of 1 1/2 days, did not feel well as usual. After 2 days, saw mobility on right arm and leg increase, only partial success but able to get around on her own. Speech improved although word searching continues, LT memory is good, problem with some ST memory. Amazed at the improvement! 2 weeks of good days and bad days.
2nd dose, same side effects of sleeping and tiredness but major improvements in all other areas. Now seems stronger on her right side, arm and leg. Her face, skin color and eyes seem like her old self, still slightly moon face from radiation and chemo but getting back to normal. Takes short walks, able to go out shopping and eating, visiting friends. Still needs assistance but gives us hope for some good quality of life for her. Only a few bad days during this time. Waiting on next dose.

My Husband it taking Avastin for a Glioblastoma wich he had almost five years ago. He has been on Avastin now for 3 years and has had 73 treatments. The treatment is working for his tumour but During this time the left side of his body has become weaker and he has problems walking. He does walk with a stick but if he has to walk far he uses a wheelchair. Is this caused by the Avastin.
I look forward to your reply.
