Anyone have a spinal tumor? Hoping for recovery and support
I have a spinal tumor consisting of nerves and blood clots at the level of the T2 vertebra and a herniated disc in that area and I feel pain in my back in place of the tumor. Is there someone who has a condition like mine and how to heal or deal with the disease or if there is hope for recovery without medical complications. My age is 30. Thnks
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Brain & Nervous System Support Group.
I'm not sure if this is helpful or not but Mayo Clinic has some information on diagnosis and treatment of spinal cord tumors here — https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/spinal-cord-tumor/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20350108
@milly93 posted in another discussion about some neuropathy symptoms going away after removal of a spinal cord tumor and may be able to share her experience.
Thank you for the answer and the explanation
I'd also like to bring @mmm and @nfrunner into the discussion as they may have experiences to share about spinal tumors.
@selmasima, is your tumor operable? Or what is your current treatment plan?
They did not give me any treatments, they did not understand the disease in my country, and they did not tell me anything. I have an irm image file in cd and medical imaging images on my phone
@selmasima if you are interested in getting a second opinion at Mayo Clinic, you can request more information and an appointment here: http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63
