    Was your head numb after surgery for meningioma?

    I had surgery 06/10/09 for a meningioma - I'd like to hear from some others who have had that surgery and their recovery. The surgery site was on the right front side of my head. The right side of my face and head are still numb, my right eye hurts every day, and my scalp is still sensitive. I'd like to know if others had lingering numbness after the surgery and if so what was the recovery time for that. My recovery from surgery was relatively quick and good, the surgery was a success and my general health is better, but I am still having pain and discomfort caused by the numbness. I hope someone else out there will share their experience with this condition.

    Hi I had my M removed march of 07, that's when they found MS lesions also. I had my surgery in the afternoon,everthing went fine. In the late evedning the icu nurse said something was wrong with me (personality change?) she called my ns they sent me for a ct and blood clot had formed, back to or open my head back up get the cvlot out drainage tube in for a week. I don't recall any of this. But yes I have had and still do a lot numbness . Mine was left frontal. any my left eye hurts real bad sometimes. I hurt when i press against my dents.but otherwise it's a numb feeling. hanging in there .hope yo are too. I go to see my ns next week I'll et you know what he says if I remember. Between the M and the MS my brain is in a fog most of the time

    Re: Was your head numb after surgery for meningioma?

    Hi Ruth, I had a Crainiotomy for a Meningioma back in 2005 and i didnt have much numness but I temporary lost the use of my left leg and had minimal use of my left arm. The Dr. said i would get all that back in a few months which i did but in only one month after i did 9 weeks of PT and didnt really feel any pain at all for the most part. I really think you should consult your Dr. that did the surgery,he is responsible for any problems you have had post surgery.....Keep us updated.
