Brain tumors suck. Hi, I'm Patrick btw. This is my cancer blog. My "normal" stuff is over here.
Nothing much happened since my last post, life was busy in general and I didn’t have the time to do much research on the topics I still want to write about. Therefore, just a quick update.
First and most important: Another clean MRI mid-February, and another reduction of my Levetiracetam intake. I’m now at the minimal dosage of 2x750mg per day. My oncologist says that currently, a further reduction would not be advisable, to minimize the risk of the epilepsy recurring. As I don’t have any side effects (yet) from taking Levetiracetam, that’s ok with me for now.
Another topic: In the last couple of years, from time to time I get emails from organizations (usually some volunteer is contacting me) that ask me if I could link their websites in the links section. I was hesitant about this for a long time, as I always feared that I might link some website that later turns out to be something shady, as there are for example many law firms out there that run websites with a cancer theme, only to get new clients. I don’t want my readers to get the impression that I endorse this.
However, I decided to go through the process of checking all the websites that have accumulated since I started this blog (to be fair, it weren’t that many) and linking those that I found to be ok. The links section has therefore been updated. If you find any website there where you have concerns about their legitimacy, I appreciate every help in the vetting process. Please contact me with anything you find and I will look into it.
