Hi guys, I have just joined this group and very grateful to have found it, Thank you. When I was 16(1999) I had none cancerous brain tumour removed(Nottingham qmc) located to the left temporal lobe, this tumour started to cause terrible headaches, memory loss, epilepsy and constant deja vus. My operation was a success and the tumour was fully removed, the only problem was that I was very conscious about the skull defect to the left temporal area following my operation but I was very grateful to the surgeons for removing the tumour.. In 2006 and 2007 I had two cranioplasty operations, first operation I had a plate fitted and the second one I had cement put in. These operations made a difference but my skull isn't symmetrical. In the passed week since getting my haircut I have noticed a slight numb/tight feeling and swelling to the area where my plate etc is and it is starting to concern me, has anyone else experienced this feeling? Also can anyone advice if cranioplasty has advanced In the passed 10 years. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks again.
