I have been brain cancer free coming up on two years, but am going through siezure episodes lately. The tumor was on the right side and the effects of the siezures start on my left side with feelings of numbness and sometimes going to full blown grand mal. My oncologist has me on Carbatrol now up to 800mg a day.
This is a more frustrating situation than dealing with the tumor and its treatment.
I feel like a zombie most of the day. Every little twinge of "fuzziness" makes me think "here we go again, where's the wooden spoon to chomp on".
I used to deal with cancer through humor - funny T-shirts. I have lost my sense of humor, I have lost control of the situation.
Don't know what else to say, thanks for listening.
