6 days ago · Numbness All Over: My story... in Brain & Nervous System

Hang in there! I, too, have problems with MRI's. Re the need to be sedated – is there not a support group or a church/minister who could accompany you to the MRI – you won't be sedated very long. Sounds like you really need to have it! Good luck

I am 72 yrs old & accidentally found out that I may have osteopenia! This was never discussed by my family doctor who took me off meds 2 yrs ago – presuming that bones were good. I haven't had a bone density test done in 25 yrs. In researching into this disease, osteopenia can be caused by a med for brain tumour – successfully removed 2 yrs ago – dilantin. I wasn't told about this side effect of this drug. Any comments about this??

I've found out that the anti- seisure med (Kepra) causes a lot of these problems! .No doctor warned me of this.. So
my quality of life after surgery has been disappointing

Oct 16, 2019 · Right-Size Your Home in Charter House

Very true for me! I packed up boxes of very good "stuff" in order to do a very quick sale and move fro. my home due to discovery of brain tumour. The boxes and furniture and painti gs were put into storage but several years later when I could no longer afford 2 large storage units, I had to face unpacking & dealing with the memories contained
Decisions needed to be made – very hard on me. I tried to do 3 boxes a day. Some days I couldn't finish one & some times I could fi ish 4/5. In most cases, the contents had nothing to do with money. But being a singe senior facing death, I had to take responsibility for these boxes of memories
