Buying off of the internet each dose(pill) of Temodar cost about $150. I took Temodar for two years with numerous other chemo's but eveyone says fatgue is the biggest side effect. I had wide brain raditation 30 days ago. The radiation itself is no big deal. I am currently experiencing confusion and memory loss. I was hoping that it would start going away by now. The Onc has me on Ritalin to help me focus and help keep me awake during the day. I no longer take Temodar since I am in compassionate use trial with Ipi.
Update, tonight I actually dusted off my treadmill and used it for the first time in years. A 1/4 of a mile, but it is a start.
Yesterday, I actually vaccumed the downstairs for the first time in a year. I am picking up a little energy as I get further away from the chemo treatments.
