Procedure or Surgery - GBM

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Glioma. Posted on September 10, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

Dr. Friedman told me this was a major surgery, however, many side effects could occur including blindness, seizures, paralyzation, and even death. He also said without surgery that death was certain and my time frame was under 6 months. The surgery was successful, however, I did have a few infections in the coming months. I was out of work for several months recuperating and needed around the clock help this whole time.

Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
