I was an active duty Army Medical support Officer in Germany. I was fininishing my Command when everything happed. I had a siezer and woke up in the parking lot bloody two floors from my office. I was the last to leave the post. I went back up to the office/bathroom to wash the blood off my face and hands. I then drove back home told my Wife I need to go to the emergency room. I need many there and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Emergency sergury was performed to remove the center. I was then medivact to Walter Reed Medical Center in Washingto DC.
I have never done this before but feel that I need a forum to express all of what is going at the moment. My mom was diagnosed with an oligodendriglioma grade one in 1989(a low grade lesion, considered a benign brain tumor according to her neurosurgeon). After optional full head radiation and recovery, she did extremely well. About 7 years later, there were some enhancements on her MRI, which they watched grow for another 6 years until she had a grande mal seizures. Once again, another surgery in 2002, with the same outcome, grade one. This time, they did not recommend treatment.
my name is Phil. I am 30 years old. I am in the U.S. Navy. I was diagnosed with colon cancer on April 6th 2015. I had a sigmoidectomy on May 5 2015. They took 14 lymph nodes and I was positive in 2 of them. So I am now Stage 3 and once I have fully recovered from my surgery I am going to begin some form of treatment.
