Jul 26, 2018 · multiple meningioma brain tumors in Brain Tumor

My husband has been experiencing stabbing pain to the head since 2010 after the first tumor was removed. These headaches he said feel like someone is stabbing him with a knife in the head. The doctors are still trying to figure out why. During these headaches he is slurring his speech, looks like a seizure ( which the doctors say there not seizures) then he passes out for 1 to 5 hours depending on severity of headaches.

Nothing like ibuprofen and Excedrin doesn't work. Laying down also doesn't work still waiting for over 6 months to see what our next step is. The tumor that he had in 2010 grew from a golf ball to a grapefruit in a matter of days. The doctors don't want to do surgery because it can be fatal. My husband only received 2 different pain pills since 2010 which he got 2 months ago but had to get off them since they were making him very sick. I want to take him to the mayo clinic but finances and a sitter is preventing us from going there. The doctors even don't know what is causing the headaches, nor why he has an seizure like attack which makes him pass out for hours. Doctors say they are not seizures then what the heck are they!!? I'm terrified and stressed because no one has answers nor the treatment that he so desperately needs.

The doctors in Fargo said radiation is not an option because radiation is what caused his tumors they say. He had leukemia at age 2.

Jul 18, 2018 · Risk on radiation as brain tumor postoperative treatment in Brain Tumor

My husband had a brain tumor removed in 2010 in Fargo. The cause of his tumors is having radiation as a toddler due to leukemia. In Fargo they also removed a major blood vessel in the front of his brain still don't know why. Since 2010 he is constantly battling stabbing headaches, dizziness, loss of vision, loss of mobility and has seizure like episodes that make him go unconscious for a few hours. No doctor can tell us why he is experiencing this nor prescribe any pain relief. We are still on a waiting game to figure out what the next step is. We have 4 children under 15 and its stressful on the kids to watch him go through so much pain instead of playing with them.
