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.
