I was diagnosed with a tumour 6 days ago. I have seen the MRI and the neurosurgeon and he says he's "almost" 100% sure it's benign and he thinks it's been there for years. He doesn't know what type of tumour it is but it's 2.7 cm x 1.9 cm in the fourth ventricle. I don't have a surgery date yet. He says he should remove it. It is close to the brain stem so he says I could have deficits after such as lose my sight or mobility.
I am so dizzy right now that I just want the surgery over with. I am scared of dying and really concerned about my family. My bf thinks I'm going to die and everyone else is being so nice - weird how it almost bugs me because everyone acting 'different' almost makes it like I will die....
I have done up my will and also written farewell letters just in case. Oh btw my surgeon says not to take Advil, Ativan (I need that for MRI claustrophobia) or sleeping pills.
Somebody please give me some hope!
