I have a menigioma. Should I wait or go ahead with surgery?
My opthamologist ordered an MRI to check out my optic nerve as I have advanced glaucoma.
After getting the results he promptly referred me to a neurosurgeon.
A 2 cm meningioma in the left frontal lobe was discovered along with some brain swelling. I have no obvious symptoms.
The surgeon explained that I could wait, repeat the MRI in 4 more months or have surgery now.
The brain swelling is my concern and is causing me some angst.
I was caught off guard and of course thought of more questions when I got home. ( which I will persue.
Is there someone out there who could address my concerns about the brain swelling? Get it out… NOW????!!
