Hi Kay, I'm so glad you are doing well. I think of you often and how you are doing.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I was diagnosed last year and had part of my tumor removed August 28, 2018. My tumor was wrapped around my left eye optic nerve and carotid artery. I have lost most of my vision in my left eye. I started losing vision in that eye before I was diagnosed. That's the only reason they suggested an MRI of my brain because of rapid vision loss. My surgery went well. I was in the hospital for 4 days. First 2 days in ICU, which is normal. If you have specific questions please feel free to ask. There are several of us on here that have been through this and will try to help. I am praying for you as you go through this journey.
Has anyone had facet Ablation done? I have had 6 spinal injections within the past year and none have worked. My Dr wants to send me to pain management and possibly do facet ablation. I was just wondering if it works and what to expect. Is it a painful procedure? How long did the results last? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I'm also having hand tremors since the surgery, so with those combined with vision loss there is no way I can do nails. It's so frustrating. Does the dr say if your vision will improve? My neurosurgeon says I will be completely blind in my left eye eventually. The remaining part of my tumor is still wrapped around my optic nerve and there is no way to remove it. He tried to remove as much of the tumor during surgery but the risks were to great to continue. I have brain MRI's every 6 months to monitor it.
