Update on surgery...
« on: May 14, 2014, 01:17:11 AM »

The surgery went well but longer than they had originally anticipated.  4.5 hours instead of 3 hours.  The tumor was approximately 25mm which is just over an inch.  It had surrounded my right caroided aertory, pushed my optic nerves up against the brain and pushed the pituitary gland off to the side (it looked smashed in the MRI).  They were able to get ALL of the tumor and it was benign.  Everything else fell back into place, where it belonged!!!  And praise our almighty God, I haven't had any headaches since (related to the tumor)!!!  I do have some residual sinus pain due to then going thru both nasal passages.  Feels like I have a bad head cold, but it is getting better everyday.

I had my post-op check up today (in Stanford) and they said all is good & they will see me in about 3 months.  They will do another MRI (I am getting real good at these!!) to make sure nothing is growing back.

Thank you all for the prayers and thoughts!!  I know it is because He hears our prayers and is faithful that I was able to be diagnosed and treated so quickly!!

Again, I can't thank everyone enough for the prayers!!!

Great to hear and glad it went well.  My mom had a brain tumor removed in 1983.  Other then having to lose hearing in one ear due to the surgery she has recovered well. Hope you have same outcome.
