Hi all, my boyfriend had a meningioma removed in September 2014. All is well in that they got the tumour out and it has been confirmed as benign. The tumour was on his left, so the right side of his body is weakened. On the whole he is recovering well but his tirendess/fatigue levels have not improved and he now has plantar fascilitis in his foot so he struggles to get around. Our GP and consultant have been very good but can't give us any indication of recovery times for the fatigue, and we are aware that its impossible to say for certain, but I'm just curious as to how long others have taken to regain their enegry after a craniotomy (or if indeed they've regained it at all). We do realise its early dys yet (4 months today since his surgery) but we don't know anyone else who has been through anything similar so it would be good to hear other folk's stories. (And all the best to anyone reading this who still has a long recovery to go).
