Intracranial Meningioma/Hallucinations

Posted by Elaine R. @mrser52, Sun, Jun 16 4:33pm

Has anyone had hallucinations with their intracranial meningioma?

Years ago, I was friends with another brain tumor survivor who experienced hallucinations after having an awake craniotomy. She either had a grade II or grade III, I don't remember. I can't even imagine being woken up during my brain surgery!! I had an intraventricular pilocytic astrocytoma. My surgery dates back to 1992. Overall, how are you? Is this a wait & watch? Please keep me updated. Thanks.

I have found out that my hallucinations were caused by my Bipolar 1 disorder. Thank you for your response.
