Tue, Oct 29 9:28am · Life after Brain surgery in Brain Tumor

I had my surgery 7 years ago and since then I am on Keppra. I had similar problems of feeling sad/depressed (1-4 years) but now I am so used to Keppra and don't have any more issues. By the way, I take 2,000 mg daily. Sometimes…not always…time helps …specially with brain issues, this is my opinion.

..what I did, I eat carrots. I prepared them the day before and put them in the refrigerator…so they were ready if I felt the urge for a cigarette I took a carrot instead. Needless to mention, I avoided all things I used to do when smoking…no alcohol, no coffee for one year! Never ever again a cigarette and I used to smoke for 10 years.

Hi…I am in a similar situation. My Meningioma is growing around my left optical nerve and I am planning an operation this year. I am very scared to lose my vision as well and look for the best neurosurgeon. Please let me know more details … was this your first operation, where was your operation?

Hi, I am sorry to hear about your situation but don't get discouraged or terrified. I have also one M growing around my left optical nerve. The first signs were like yours, black eye and less vision in that eye. However, I had surgery in 2012 and now my vision is almost back to normal. I do not need glasses for driving only reading. By the way, nobody in my family (as far as I know) had such a brain tumor and I am otherwise a very healthy person. Again, it's difficult but please stay positive…it will help you overall and in making decision, etc. All the very best to you….

As far as I know, radiation does work if the tumor is not very big. My tumor is over 3cm and I got different opinions, none of the doctors recommended radiation due to the size “except one doctor”!!!

Yes, definitely taste and smell become much more sensitive … after quitting there are only good things which come out or came out for me 🙂

Hi… I would like to point out, that there are more ways and methods to quit smoking, every person is different and has to pick the method they feel is right for them or recommended by their medical team. My way was just "my success story" it does not apply to every person!

The reason for me to make the comment in this group is to encourage/help people … there are ways and methods to quit smoking, if it's a patch or medication … just do it …it is well worth it … but never give up!!!

Hi, I know it is not easy to quite smoking but it is possible. I quite after 10 years of smoking, I smoked 20-30 cigarettes a day and noticed that I was not fit anymore, bad cough in the morning and the smell. I knew I had to do something, so I told myself I wanted to quite smoking "not forever", but just for a certain time, for me it was 10 years. Consequently, if I don't like the 10 years without a cigarette then it was ok for me to start smoking again. This idea which I had always in my head helped me a lot. It encouraged myself that every day that passed without a cigarette, I was closer to that day that I can smoke again. In addition, I stopped going to bars, no alcohol, coffee or anything what I used to do with a cigarette. Also, I started walking/running in the morning at least for 30 minutes. I think after going through that for 90 days which was not easy, I "never ever" would have put a cigarette in my mouth. Actually, I even became a marathon runner, trekker in the Himalayas and did do many things which I couldn't have done as a smoker. After quitting smoking I realized how beautiful life is, how much stronger I am, can do and appreciate so many things in life. I wish you all the best, just be strong…you can do it!!!
