I am a young 68. I have been on watch and wait for 10 years. Last year it grew, and the surgeon said it needs to come out, but I had parathyroid surgery scheduled. (Now I have Grave's Disease and Thyroid Eye Disease.) This month the MRI showed no change, so the surgeon said we can watch and wait again or I can have it removed. I chose to not have my head cut open this year. If it grows again, the surgeon may tell me now is the time. But at my age? The fun don't done.

Tumor has been stable since last year. Surgeon said I can have surgery or watch and wait a year. I opt not to have my skull cut open. Another MRI May 2020. 😬

The parathyroid surgery went okay on June 22, but it resulted in Graves Disease and Thyroid Eye Disease (double vision, distorted poor vision, yuck). So, I've been dealing with that with the pending doom of the meningioma surgery in the back of my mind. I get an MRI in May and will see what the surgeon says is necessary at that time. I hope it doesn't grow again. Thanks for writing to me. I'll be checking out the links.

I've been having regular MRI's for almost 10 years. My last two have shown growth, and my neurologist says it's time to have it removed. Since I am having parathyroid surgery Friday, he said it's okay for it to wait a year. Has anyone had olfactory groove meningioma surgery?
