I had stage 2 meningioma on the fourth brain ventricle. I had resection with possible small amount of residual brain tumor left. I had five weeks of low dose radiation, and several scans since with no noted change. I have had serious side effects as a result of surgery. I am waiting for a second operation for strabismus.

My girlfriend was suffering in brain tumor and has undergone surgery couple of years back. I think she is okay now but yearly we need to admit her for checkup, don’t not why.

I had 7 months chemotherapy; I've got stage 3 germ cell cancer and 2 brain tumors in the frontal lobe and the left side of my forehead.

I had surgery within a week of learning I have a brain tumor. I probably will have another surgery to remove the rest of the tumor.
