HI everyone, on April 1 I had been informed about my Brain Tumor as I was having seizures while at Walmart and on my way to my daughthers house. We went to the hospital. Had a cat scan and a MRI and on April 16th had another MRI and Markers for the Biopsy. Then on April 30th I had another MRI markers and the Brain Tumor Removed. It was about the size of the tip of my thumb. And now I have an appointment with the Oncologist on the 26th as of my last doctors visit (Surgeon) May 12th, the Report still wasn't back on what type grade the tumor is or was. So at this time we still don't know. Surgeon believes it is Glioblastoma Multiforme.
We have been in contact with Dr Henry Friedman at the Preston Robert Tesch Brain Tumor Cancer Center at Duke University, for a second opinion. He said he needed the slides samples and my post op MRI at which I have not had yet. We may know more on tuesday the 26 and maybe I can get what Dr Friedman needs. God Bless us all. With the love of my wife and family and the love of our GOD. We can make it!
