Hello, I'm new to this forum and new at this brain tumor business as well.
My big sister(28years old) was diagnosed with a brain tumor (oligodendroglioma grade II)in November 2009. She underwent surgery in December 2009. She just had her follow-up MRI today and we’ll find out the results next week I guess. The surgeon believes he got all of the tumor or at least most of it out but there still is a small (or not that small I must admit) part of me that is scared out of my mind that what if they didn’t get all of it or even worse what if the tumor has already progressed. I mean, how is one supposed to live with this uncertainty? How do you cope with waiting for the MRI results? Does the waiting ever get any easier?
P.S. Also if anyone has any knowledge or insight of this type of tumor, any survival stories etc. I’d be more than happy to hear them!
