Left Frontal Meningioma surgery recovery

@mrector My doctor said that the pain must be neurological and sent me to a neurologist. The neurologist just gave me pain pills and sent me on my way. My tumor had tentacles some of which could not be removed because of their location. I had annual MRIs to check the status of the remnants for five years. During that time another tumor was found on the top of the frontal lobe. So far it has not grown any at all.

@mrector may I ask….I know what caused my meningioma. I had mantle radiation in 1988. This for sure was the cause. I was 12 and it was for hodgkins lymphoma. At 30 I had cardio myopathy, congestive heart failure. The radiation thickened 2 valves in my heart. A few years later, pancreatitis. At my first mamogram in 2015 we found breast cancer starting. It was starting in both breasts. In 2018 after asking more than once for a CT they showed me a large tumor on my MRI. All of this is from that mantle radiation.
Were you given a cause or it just happened…
