Craniotomy in 9 days
In September 2021, I went for a routine MRI for my MS and a new 7mm tentorial meningioma was discovered. This was at the Mayo Rochester. That neurologist said he’d see me in 2 years. I was already having headaches along with increased fatigue and nausea. I went for a second opinion with a neurosurgeon; since the MRI in September 2021 I’ve had 2 subsequent scans which have shown growth and I now have mass effect so in 9 days I’m having a left occipital craniotomy. I know there are so many variables with different outcomes but I’d like to hear from others that have gone through this surgery and recovery.
