Hi everyone! So, I went to my neurosurgeon after my mri last week and he said that it was better than he has seen in a couple of years for me. I guess my brain is filling up the vacant space and he said the tumor may be dormant. I have a grade II Astrocytoma that has extensions - kind of like roots - and he said that he couldn't see much remaining on the mri.
All of this could be positive, but I am having issues with numbness and tingling on my right side (tumor in left temporal). The numbness is on my face - all the way down to my foot. My surgeon had said that if I was still having a problem in a few weeks to give them a call back, and it seems a little worse today.
Do ya'll think I should call the neurosurgeon or a neurologist. He had given me the name of a neurologist I had seen in the past (which I don't remember) in case I had seizures or other issues.
I am frustrated, confused and may be overreacting. Any ideas? I almost think that there may be something in my head that he missed on the mri.....
Thanks for any thoughts....
