also try the professional organization that oversees neurosurgeons in Canada. Look it up on the internet & contact them. BTW – Over sveral yrs, I "interviewed" 3 NS before I settled on the one who removed my beign meningioma successfully. My family dr. was very helpful in setti g up these referrals so I could decide on which NS was goi g to have the "priviledge" of opening up my brain! BYW – I live in Ontario, Canada. Don't be pushed aroubd by the health care system. Fight for your health!!!

Thu, Mar 28 4:04am · Watching a Meningioma Brain Tumor in Brain Tumor

Hello – I had a grade 1 benign meningioma tumour removed over a year ago. It was completely removed & determined to be non-cancerous. It'd diagnozed on Oct. 17 in 2013 as a result of my first & only seizure. The NS waanted to operate within 2 days – I believe more because of the edema – than because of the existing benign tumour. Because of extreme fear of craniotomy & not having any time to figure out & realistically look at all options, I simply let each day go by without commiting to surgery. Just couldnt do it. My NS put me on anti-seisure meds & I just got on with my life. It wasnt until April 2017 that I started to have real problems..MRI was done & the tumour has shrunk 10% in size & its shape changed. So I knew I had to go ahead with the surgery. I will not get into the details – I dont want to add any more to your worry. My reason in replying to you is that you MUST ask your NS about the post surgery outcomes & your quality of life! I didnt not – didnt really know ai should ask those ki ds of questions & my bloody NS never, ever told me about the problems I most likely would happen. My head healed well, the tumour was removed successfully but ….
Do as.much research about after-effects & what will be your quality of life & the provlems you will have. it is such a decision to reach. I wish you well!!!!

Mon, Mar 18 5:36pm · Five Things I Wish I’d Known Before My Chronic Illness in Neuropathy

Good for you! Part of the grieving process is acceptance & I am really not there. I am still angry – about several issues which are all related to my brain surgery & the lack of info & support from my NS, hand-selected hospital & the health care team/system which is very fragmented!!!! BUT I am a very resilient person & my annger has, in fact, helped me. Sometimes this anger can give me good energ which I usually don't have a lot of. So I my learning to forward that anger energy to something goo & not make me.feel so guilty & messed up.
