A few people on ATS already know that I have been fighting a Brain tumor for the last 10 years, but today I received news that my tumour was active
again and the scans had shown a small growth in the size. About 3 weeks ago I had quite a severe seizure, it had come as a big shock , as I had been
feeling extremely well for the past 2 years.
I put the seizure down to the fact I had come off my anti convulsant medication, without informing my doctors and weening myself off them. But it
seems the scan has shown some regrowth.
I was told that surgeons have been taking a look and want me to have a few scans over the next few weeks, to assertain how safe it is to operate. It
is in a position close to the areas that control the legs and arms and this will be my third surgery making things more dangerous.
I dont know what to do with myself, I feel totally numb. I really thought It was going all down to me not taking my pills.
I sent you a very important message. Read it when you can.
Hey man sorry to hear that, its hard to even relate to something like that. My friends dad just past away from a brain tumour and two years ago I
suggested reading Michael Newtons books witch he said gave him an exited feeling from then on until he died. I think it really helped him flip the
scrip on death, not to sound doom and gloom on you.
So now I highly recommend Dr Michael Newtons books to you, I am sending happy thoughts your way.
Oh man, I have enjoyed your posts for such a long time...how have I missed this? (Well not totally true, you hurt my feelings when I posted a Lyn
Skyn song one time but I am well over that, lol--Just kidding!)
Positive thinking must be the rule now, as I'm sure you well know from your history...Visualization of troops of those "good" blood cells
eliminating that tumor...it is shrinking more and more...until it is finally gone. Of course, in line with your doctors' line of treatment,
surely you overcome this slight obstacle again.
I just went through a 2nd phase of radiation, and I'm now on the chemo pills for malignant melanoma...dealt with it in my 20s...now it appears in my
30s...this time it's invasive...I have a Dr.'s appt. tomorrow to see if surgery will help...
But your experience seems so much more trying...IMO you are a stong, brave one.
I wish I could make it all go away for all of us...
If Death is on your mind, don't forget that you've been there before.
This place is not unfamiliar, you were there before you were born.
Try and remember what it was like. You've been there for eternity.
You forgot what it was like for a few years that's all. We are all going to see ya there even if we don't.
so sorry to hear this...you have fought the good fight for a long time...don't give up! we are here for you!!! I just spent time in the hospital with
a nasty kidney infection, I am on the mend....(((((((hugw to you)))))...hang in there!!!
Sorry to hear this man. I hope that you get better of course and you can be healed by our modern medicine. Just do not give up . I'll give you two
words though that may help you along your way. Maybe a phrase. But it would be up to you to do some research into it, and there is no guarantees. But
it could help.
Watch a documentary called "Run from the cure". You may find it interesting.
Your ATS family will be right by your side every step of the way, of that you can be sure. I went through a hell of a year kicking cancer in the butt
and hope it doesn't return, but ya never know. My books were/are a wonderful diversion. I like to lose myself in the pages of another world. Love
sci/fi and fantasy stuff with dragons and what-not. I'm sure you have found things that work for you as well.
Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Much Love and Light.
If I'm not mistaken you mentioned wanting to try chemo before your operation. Chemo shrunk my growth to nothing. I had a hard lump and a mass of
whatever. It was an invasive kind of cancer. After my operation I had some rounds of radiation. The cancer is gone but still having one kind of chemo
for precautionery measures until September. They give you pills for nausea. If you have any questions ask me here or in a U2U.
I'm really sorry to hear about this, you probably don't realise it but you are one of the few people here that I care about (insomuch as its
possible to care about somebody not having met in person). I must admit it was firstly your Mr Benn pic, but your posts, music and the odd interaction
we've had that make me say this.
Depends on how you prefer handling things, you might want to urgently get yourself to a doctor to consider your options and to get a second opinion if
poss. And I agree totally that its a good time to get lost in the Olympics, I know that back in blighty a lot of people have been cynical about the
Olympics, but I'm completely hooked. I'm not the type to be proud of anything I can't personally take responsibility for, but the London is doing a
good job of hosting and the BBC are doing a great job of broadcasting and I take some pride in that...
You can beat anything you set your mind to. I wish you all the best. You can do this.
Besides, I have enjoyed our arguments, ahem, discussions......don't even think of giving up now.
Get advice advice advice advice!!!
You can beat this no problems.
Sending you positive mental thoughts.
On top of that, get your ass over to Australia, take some time to take everything in, clear your mind of all the BS. Let your mind focus on one thing
and one thing only. You are strong, this is a piece of piss.

There is a lady in our church about late 30s that had a reoccuring brain tumor now for about 10 years . I thought it might be her posting here .
She had surgeries and radiation and it still came back . The last thing that I know happened was she asked her church to lay hands on her and pray for
her . Thats been 3 or 4 years ago . She still is coming to church and I'm not sure but I think her last X-ray was good . The laying on of hands and
prayer is not to be taken lightly ! Textreply to post by
And here is something that may (or may not help). But it has worked for me before, though not with something of this magnitude.
Ask the universe for help. One day I was in the s**t and didn't know what else to do. It felt like the end of the world (and in your case it *is* the
end of the world). I had no idea what to do next because there seemed to be no answers.
So I did what anyone would do who is looking for an answer to a question: I googled "Asking the Universe for Help."
Try it. And then ask. Be specific and honest. Only ask for what you really need. And see what happens. (And FYI there is an ATS thread that will
appear when you google. Don't read that. Other people's opinions don't matter - only yours.)
