Hello Karissa: I'm a 48 year old woman with brain cancer. I'm approaching my 3rd anniversary. I've been diagnosed with Oligo-Astrocytoma, left-frontal. I've had 2 surgeries. You didn't say what type of "b.c." you have(?) Mine was a stage 3 at my first surgery. I'm here...Mary

HEllo Karissa: I am a 24 year old woman with brain cancer as well. I was first diagnosed at age 19 with a oligo-astrocytoma mix, stage 3 like Mary. I had one surgery at 19. Unfortunately I have had a recurrence and am now going through chemo which hasn't been too bad so far. I am here as well for anyone....Jen

HI! I am a 27 year old woman, who had a central neurocytoma removed in July of 2000. I had terrible headaches, my husband finally got me to go to the doctor, five days later I was in surgery. Geesh. They said I would have fallen over dead in less than 30 days. My poor husband didn't know if I'd even survive the surgery. But here I am back in the Phd Biochemistry program! It has been a very long journey. The 'cracks' in my head are really hurting today, really the reason I found this web site today and wanted to talk to somebody. Write back! Mary

Hello Mary

I am happy to hear that you are doing so well. I had a glioblastoma removed in December, 1999. It was something I wasn't expecting at all and also found it at last possible minute. I wanted to ask you if you've had lingering side effects. I have balance problems as well as vision changes. How is it that you still have pain in your head? Gathira

Glad to hear you have survived five years after being diagnosed with glioblastoma. This is heartning words for those of us who have had a relative recently diagnosed with the disease. Take care and hope everything continues to go well with you.
