Back to Surgery!

Hi Everyone,

      I had scans on March 27 and CT scan for neck, lungs, and pelvic came back with no change and everything was great. But MRI for the brain, not so good, I have another tumor, so back to surgery I go.  I will let everyone know when I get my surgery date, should be within the next 2 weeks.  Things are not to bad, I have asked Doc to pull skin a little extra tight so I might be able to incorporate having a brain tumor removed and a face lift all for the price of one!!

                                               Prayers for good health!

                                                Brenda

    Very sorry to hear about

    Very sorry to hear about it... But with your attitude and humor you'll definitely be all right! Do I understand correctly that they cut it out and you are NED again?

    Surgery to come!

    This is my second brain tumor, I had a tumor in the brain taken out in November of 2013 and I have been NED every since.  This surgery will be a little more involved, this tumor has actually burrowed down in my brain, so the receovery will not be a fast as the last one.  And my husbnd has asked for some changes be made to my brain while the Dotor is in there!  I just know everything will be fine, and thank you for taking this trip with me!

         Love to you all!

    Sh!t, sh!t, and more sh!t, huh Brenda? I wish you and everyone else didn't have to go through this. One thing I am sure of is your toughness. I hope as they keep making space in your cranium, you don't hear echoes. You know I am pulling for you. Love ya' Fox.

    This disease

    I hate this damned disease more each day; am so sorry that you need to go through this again but wish you the very best.

    And, it is good that there are no other areas so you can focus on the brain issue.

    So sorry

    You have to go through this again.  Praying for you and hope doc gets it all out to never return again.  THis disease is so horrible and that is why we all get anxiety when scan time comes up.  You are in my thoughts.

    Very sorry to hear the news. 

    Very sorry to hear the news.  But you have a terrific perspective and sense of humor.  Laughter can be the best medicine.  Keep smiling and laughing in the face of cancer.

    Cyber Knife Radiation

    Angec,

         After the surgery I will have treatments of cyber knife radiations.  This was how the last brain tumor was treated.  They still feel that surgery with a follow up of the cyber knife is a good prescription for me.  This brain tumor is in the right frontal lobe, and the last one was more towards the back and I had right side body numbness.  The only symptom I had with this was minor headaches right across my forehead and they were constance!

         This time my husband is requesting some changes while I am going to be opened up!  Silly man, but I do love him so!

    Admire your guts

    Brenda, 

    I am sorry they need to tinker yet again in your brain, but I love your spirit! Back at cha, beeatch! (That's you talking to the tumor.) 

    I know you will be fine, too. Isn't it wonderful when you get these gut feelings? 

    Chest out, chin up!

    That sucks!

    I'm so sorry you have to go through this again.  It sounds like you and your hubby have a great relationship; humor is key to living happily with another person especially in the face of illness.  My hubby and I have faced Diffused Systemic Scleroderma and cancer.  DSS was supposed to have killed him 8 years ago, but he's still here givin' me grief every day and celebrating my recent NED ct results for RCC.  Now that I think of it why didn't I ask for liposuction while they were taking' my kidney out?  Here's to you for your great attitude and humor in the face of such a sucky situation!
