7 days ago i notice my speech slurring or when trying to have a normal conversation ended up as one disaster after the other. Dizziness, unable to walk straight even typing this out is going to take a while. I hav lost the memory where the keys are so it all new to me again. ( about a 50cent piece of my brain/ tumor has been taken out). So i went to see the doctor and told him what the problem was, he rushed me of to hospital for a ICT scan, a tumorshowed up on the brain on the xrays, they then rushed me off to the city hospital for an MRI scan. (MRI scan anyone who has had one will know what i mean when i mention STARWARS sounds this is to test the brain can pick up sounds 360 degrees i persume. 20minutes of it move the body to much and ill have to do it all over a again). The tumor had to be removed to stop it spreading. My choice tho. If i decide to leave it in take my chances, my chances are pretty slim. Prone to more slurry speech, possible seizures,tumor spreading. Take it out i said to the surgeon. If i decide to go ahead with it i could have sezisures. Of to the Operating ward. 3 hrs later i wake up in the bed still coming out of Anesthetic about 1 hr later i have a seizure - fit. Scariest thing iv ever experience, face twitching, body & hands shaking couldn't press the buzzer to alert the nurses as i was shaking to much, Then what seem like an eternity i went calm. My eyes were open during the seizure which is a good sign they said. If you have a seizure in your sleep its not, the only way you would know if you had one is when you wake up in the mornin with a sore jaw or a slight dribble when speaking. When the doc told me that i thought back and remember a couple of times during the past yr, that i have woken up with a sore jaw and slight dribbling at the mouth, i must of had a seizure during the night. Wow how sick was i back then! Okay this has already taken me nearly 2hrs to finish this where i typed it up in notepad and copy paste here stopping for breaks as i can feel fatigue setting in. Being doped up to the eyeballs on medication isn't helping either, Life is in SLOW MODE atm. I take about 6 tablet per day , codeine, Steroids, anti blood pressure pills anti fit pills, some for the stomach some for the swelling of the brain. Zombie time! Have my son and my sisters takin good care of me oh yes i want to give a big thanks to the nurses at Waikato hospital here in Hamilton NZ. They were a sight for sore eyes and im positive they lowered my Blood pressure down every time they showed up. And the good surgeons who got me through the operation. No TV, No watching movies no gaming, listening to music is ok, anything that will set the brain of into stress mode can lead to a seizure no web surfing. Even txting ona cell phone ca n & too much reading over a long period I got bored. Its hard tying to keep away from entertainment. ill miss the movies and and till recovery. Ive had a lot of time to think while lyin in Hos, if anyone reading this has ever experience bad headaches extreme ones that are always in the same area of the brain. Go get it checked out at the docs and ask for an ICT scan just to be sure. according to the surgeon ive had this Tumor for years. I remember the terrible headaches and just passed it off as over stressed or fatigue pop a panadol and she'll be right.. the warnings were there. The tumor will just manifest itself where it will need to be removed or it could be too late to remove the tumor. luckily im only 49 still young enough to kill the tumor & still in pretty fit condition, well i thought i was. lol Ok i wontbe posting on here as much as i would like. so take care everyone hope to be back when ive come right.
