Sep 1, 2018 · multiple meningioma brain tumors in Brain Tumor

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!!!

Nancy, my tumor is presently 3cm x 4,4cm and I have to do something. I got operated first time back in October 2012 but since then it has grown 5mm. I do have seizures but take Keppra. Otherwise, I have no side effects…I’m more sensitive to noise or bright lights. I just wish it would stay like this…they informed me at my next operation speech and vision is in danger…
