Second brain tumor

Posted by @morock77, Mon, Jul 9 1:55pm

In 2010 my husband underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor. Since then he has headaches so severe that it feels like someone is stabbing him with a knife. They get so bad that he passes out for a couple of hours. Now a couple of months ago we found out he has 2 more tumors, and the headaches are getting more and more frequent and worse. We are going to Fargo and St. Cloud but our questions are not being answered. And the doctors won't prescribe anything for the pain.We would love to go to the Mayo but our finances and trying to find a sitter for our 4 children is stopping us. Can someone help please?

Hi @morock77
I encourage to call Mayo Clinic and tell them about your situation. The schedulers may have suggestions about financing or how Mayo experts could collaborate with local experts. I'm not sure, but there may be options. You never know if you don't ask. Here is a link to the contact numbers to request an appointment http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63 When you call at any of our 3 campuses, you will be offered an appointment within 48 hours. Experts at Mayo Clinic can review your test results, help answer your questions and guide you through the treatment plan. Be sure to mention the Brain Tumor 48-access program and tell them your situation.

May I ask what type of brain tumor your husband has? I'd like to connect you with other members who have experience with the same type of brain tumor.
