    Question A-Typical Meningioma

    Hello I have a question and hope someone can help. I had a A-Typical Meningioma removed June 2,2006. Then went through 34 radiation treatments to the right side of my brain. Well so far my brain scans are coming up good. But I have now started having some pain on the right side off and on its a sharp shooting pain. And the other night there was a burning sensation on that side. My next scan is next month but if anyone else has had these problems please let me know. I also wonder what is the long term effects of the radiation? The reason for my radiation is I had some aggresived cells growing within my tumor. And the treatments were to give me a 50/50 chance at 10 years before it returns. Any help is appreciated.

    My advice is that you know your body, call and see if you can see the doc and get a script for a scan sooner just to be sure better safe than sorry. Can you tell you what made it A typical vs typical because they say mine may be A typical I haven't had it removed yet.

    GO NOW! I wish you the best remember you know your body best. Happy Easter!

    Hi Tina,

    I had a major cranial resection and 35 days intensive radiotherapy in 2007/2008. While my quality of life has improved since the operation which removed much of the left hand side of my skull and has not been replaced (because the Grade II is expected to return), my life is very different. I do get occasional severe pain on the site and through the brain but I can manage it most times with medication. There are also other complications. But most days are very good. I have regular (6 monthly MRIs) and check ups and so far so good. Clear for 3 years so far. Life is not the same again but I grab each day as a blessing and really make the most of it. If worried at all get your medics to talk with you and do checks if necessary. For reassurance and to be on the safe side. Never worry. Do something. Hope that helps, Peter
