Hello, my name is Heidi. While I myself do not have cancer, my father was recently diagnosed with having an olfactory neuroblastoma last week. I would like to talk with anyone who either is a survivor or knows someone who has been diagnosed with this cancer. I'm daddy's little girl, and this diagnosis has been really difficult for me.
On February 4, 2012 he was rushed to the hospital because he wasn't acting like himself, and he kept falling down and couldn't pick himself back up. My dad is only 55, and that is not like himself at all. He had a CT scan and they found the tumor, which they say was the size of an orange. He then had a frontal craniotomy the next day, February 5, 2012. Surgery went well, and my dad did awsome with recovery. He was discharged from the hospital 5 days after surgery, which i thought was a little soon, but he has continued to do great. He has physical, occupational, and speech therapy twice a week, and is set to start radiation in the next week.
I just would like to talk with anyone who has been diagnosed with this cancer, or know someone who has. Anyone who has survival stories would be helpful. I'm really scared, and imagining life without my dad is unbearable.
