| | xanthogranuloma lesion on left parietal lobe
I'm new here. I just found out via a CT scan that I have a xanthogranuloma lesion on top of my left parietal lobe. I was wondering if there were any other patients with a similar malady on this board and if they would mind sharing their experiences with me. I'm quite nervous, it seems that most people are not the same after brain surgery.
I found out about the lesion after having a seizure due to Wellbutrin.
I am scheduled to go to a specialist to have an MRI in a few weeks to obtain more detail about my condition and I'm scared (the CT scan also showed some other very small roundish bubble shaped formations dotting my brain surface only on my left side - I am terrified at the prospect of what those might be). The right side of my brain is perfectly normal. All of the problems are on the left side (I am left handed by the way and went through serious abuse as a child due to a schizophrenic mother, who also thought it a great idea to start giving her 8 year old child hair relaxers.)
During my childhood, I suffered from a plethora of brain lesion symptoms. I had severe problems paying attention in class, nausea, problems understanding spoken instructions, migraines, headaches, mood swings, and worst of all depression. My mother was asked by the school to take me for an MRI or CT scan when I was 14 and she did not do it. She just continued abusing me (verbally and physically), in addition to bullying me; all three of these disciplinary efforts were a daily routine and they charred my soul in ways you could not imagine. Has anyone ever heard of severe abuse causing a brain lesion, tumor, or disorder? If so, please provide any details you might have.
This has been very long and wordy, but if you can help me, I'd be grateful.
