Re: Brain Tumor

My grandfather had a brain tumour. He only lasted 6 months from the time of diagnosis. It was not a very pleasant time for the family, as we looked after him at home, and that's were he passed away.
He went from a very sporty person to someone who had lost ALOT of weight and looked like a skeleton. He had lost all motor functions, memory of anyone or anything, stopped eating, and on ALOT of morphine.

Don't mean to scare you Katrina, as the above was a worst case scenario.
It really does depend on the type of tumour. Alot of brain tumors can be non cancerous. Also, alot depends on it's location and whether it's something that can be operated on or treated.

Re: Brain Tumor

My friend Jeff just had a tumor removed over the summer. By removing it, it relieved a number of medical problems that he was having. He's back to full duty now, and the only sign that there was ever a problem is his "zipper." The zipper is the scar on the back of his head where they entered to perform the operation.

I'd think that flippant comments like this might be somewhat out of place if, say, someone close to Katrina had it and she was looking for some advice and consolation.

That said, it would be good if we knew why she's asking that, so we know how to approach it.

Depending on the reason, the question itself might have been out of place.

I think I would have been really insensitive if the question was posted as "Question: Doctor told me I have a brain tumor...........". Anyway, my answer was not meant to be funny because Brain Freeze is actually quite painful.

Re: Brain Tumor

Katrina - you are not going to find the answer to that question from us.

Some people wll get better, some people will die. There are too many variables that will affect somebody diagnosed with a brain tumor for anybody other than that persons doctor to give any info
