My father has a glioblastoma in his left frontal lobe; his 30 rounds of radiation ended less than 2 weeks ago. Last week, he went down from 4 mg to 3 mg of steroids; that was a mistake and we have gone back up. However, he has not fully recovered and his use of the wrong words and other speech issues have increased since last week. I am worried the cause is tumor growth, not post-radiation swelling. Does anyone have experience with increased speech issues post-radiation, and have insight into the cause? Thanks.
