Hello and welcome to Mayo Connect @lovesheep123 I noticed this looks like your first post here. I am Scott and while I have not had this type of tumor my wife did. It was discovered in her frontal cortex.

It sounds as if you had surgery on your tumor and it was not all able to be removed. This was also the case with my wife.

There are lots of folks here who I am sure can also add their situation and diagnosis.

What questions do you have?

Yes…… 6 years ago….. had resection , they could not get all

I was diagnosed with an Oligodendroglioma IDH-mutant, 1p/19q-codeleted (grade 2) tumor. I had some seizures and I was found out I had a tumor in the ER. I underwent awake brain surgery And I am just finishing proton beam radiation therapy. Next, I will start my chemotherapy. I'm not looking forward to it. When I first woke up from my surgery I needed a lot of help with pretty much everything. Now, aside from driving, my brain has basically rewired itself and I'm pretty much able to care for myself again. I'm in my 40's so the loss of independence was a pretty big deal. Thank god for my wonderful caregivers, I appreciate them so much! They never made me feel like a burden and I'm so thankful for that.

Hello @barb789123 Welcome to Mayo Connect! Nice to e-meet you here, although I am sorry to read of your diagnosis. I am Scott and my wife was also diagnosed with an oligodendroglioma in her 40s. I was her caregiver.

She, too, after her surgery was greatly impacted, but after intensive PT and OT she, too, regained much of her abilities. It's amazing to read of the advances made in treatment of this type of tumor since her diagnosis — proton beam was just being discussed at the first of her illness.

As a caregiver I appreciated your comment on how much you appreciated their help. Often that is not communicated! What was it you appreciated the most from your caregivers?

Strength, courage, and peace!
