Aug 25, 2018 · Optic Nerve Meningioma patients in Brain Tumor

Hi. My wife is considering surgery for a meningioma pressing on her left optice nerve. Options provided was to operate through the top of her skull or above her left eyebrow. How was yours performed? How long did you remain in the hospital? Did you or will you need radiation on the tumor remnants? I'd appreciate the information, my wife is scheduled for surgery in a few thank you.

Hi Nancy. Sorry for not replying sooner. It's been a worldwind. From Orlando to Baskum Palmer Institute, Miami and now to Mayo Jacksonville. Still not sure what to do. Some doctors recommend drug therapy while others recommend fractionated radiation and yet others say surgery is the best option. Do you have any ideas? Thanks for remembering us.

My wife underwent cataract surgery in Apr 2018. She continued to have cloudy vision, was told to have a brain scan (MRI) and the result was that she has a 1.3 cm x 1.3 cm x 1.5 cm meningioma that is pressing against the optic nerve. That is why she has cloudy vision and has failed 3 vision tests (lost peripheral vision). This was all confirmed by a nueroopthalmologists and she now scheduled to see a neurosurgeon for options regarding treatment. Like you, I don't know exactly how my wife and I should proceed.
