    Misdiagnosed

    Oh No

    blindness left eye within 6 months. misdiagnosed initially as benign slow growing meningioma of the optical nerve. Recent biopsy states unable to "put a name to tumor" but is aggressive and malignant.

    External radiation

    Radiation

    will have daily radiation x 5 weeks the cyber knife. As of today only my second radiation treatment. Have been told only side effect will be feeling tired or sleepy. Concerned about returning to work as a registered nurse.

    Painless Experience: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA

    Body part/function

    Loss

    I have lost vision and left eye over a period of 6 months. Having trouble coming to terms and concerned how it will effect my job as registered nurse. Generally, I have always had an optimistic attitude and a good bit of empathy towards others experiencing health problems. But I don't think a truly understood what others were going though emotionally until now.
