My sister has a brain tumor!!!!!

post #1 of 207
Thread Starter 

Been at the hospital yesterday and today, and catskans and MRI's results show my sister has a brain tumor (size of an egg) over her left eye, but internally, and four other tumors (smaller) on inside of left eye!

They said from the size of it, and the neuro-surgeons 27 yrs. experience, it appears to be benign, but will be having it surgically removed on Tuesday or Wednesday next week, at which time a biopsy will be done, determining for sure, if it is, in fact, benign. Dr. says the prognosis looks good, yet dont know for sure yet until...........!

There's also a chance one of the four smaller tumors may blind her left eye. And everyday left untreated the tumor is going further into her brain, where she may 1) die; 2) have brain damage; 3) suffer seizures. So I've been doing nothing but worrying, the worst of course, and crying.

Cheryl, this is such an awful thing. I am so sorry! I am praying and praying for your sister. We are sending all our strength and healthiest vibes your way. May I add that my father had 3 tumors two years ago in a similar way? He was 70. He sailed through and they have not returned. It caused so much anxiety inside me. Please keep us informed and how stressful and unfortunate at this (or any) time of year. We're thinking of you!!!

Cheryl that's so scary! I'm so glad that they've caught it and will be able to do something to remove it. I have a friend in North Carolina who has just been diagnosed as having a brain tumour, but his appears to be malignant. he's taken it really well though - in fact, he was all laughing and joking about being able to stay off work for a few months while they send him off to the Carribean to relax and recover from surgery and Chemotherapy!! I will be praying that your sisters tumours are benign and that they can remove all of it. I don't know about the ones in her eye, thankfully it is only one eye though. I'll be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers now. God bless - stay strong I'll pray that she can make a swift and full recovery

OMG, Im so sorry to hear that. It's like one of my worst fears. You'll both be in my prayers, and I hope it turns out ok.

Oh dear, Cheryl, what difficult news for you and your family to receive. What is your sister's name? I am praying that this tumor is benign and that the procedure is completly successful and your sister has a prompt, full recovery. Please keep us updated how she is feeling.

Oh Cheryl - what awful news . I'm sorry that you, your sister and your family are having a hard time right now. I'll be keeping my thoughts with you that the procedure goes smoothly and the tumour turns out to be benign. A friend of mine was diagnosed with a malignant tumour a year ago (he's about 60) and they can do so much without too much invasive surgery now - all kinds of things like laser treatment - his tumour has gone and it won't be coming back.

Very best wishes and "get well soon" vibes to you all and your sister

Please let us know how she goes on.
