Great first meeting with Dr Adam Cohen neuro oncologist at Inova yesterday.  Must figure out which statin to try for the metronomic temozolomide and the statin regimen.  The last few months have been beyond difficult - I was dealing with severe pain in my legs and even more unnerving, a tendency to fall.  (Nothing broken yet!)  So Dr Purow thinks I could be allergic to the Zocor - for now I'm taking the chemo without the statin to accompany it.  Of all things my saliva and swallowing "management" have worsened.  Thank you Dr Deepa Subramanium for her words - she knew what she was talking about when she said that "brain tumor patients need extra TLC!"
