      I am so greatful for all that has happened. The tumor ended up being deeper and while shrinking the Dr agrees that this was the perfect time to get it out now. .  There is still edema and will take time but will improve.   He was able to remove the tumor!!!!

      I get to come home tomorrow!  It will take time. They steroids are still high but have taken it down some. They also are antiseizure.   I'm already off of pain pills!  It does sound like a little more radiation will finish it off. I guess that's discussed in a few weeks.  I've been put in a trial for the dura liner so I get a little closer attention which is fine.

      I probably won't be online much, Just vegging out.

          Linda,

          Very happy for you!!  You deserve the best results.  Now that you have relief, watch out for the steroid withdrawal symptoms,-they will happen anyway-just be aware.  You have nowhere to look but up for quite a while now.

          God Bless

          p.s. don't be a stranger.

                            I’m happy to see you posting after surgery! I’m hoping the very best for you that they got all the tumor, that you don’t get much edema and that your time on steroids is short.

                            Rest and when you’re up to it we will see you back:)
