I wonder if any of you good people could help me.
I would like a bit of Info on Cranioplasty, I know that Its a metal plate to relapse part of the scull.
What I would like to know is how soon after your op to remove a brain tumor can you have the plate fitted ? Or can you have it fitted at the same time?
Also how long dose it take to have the plate made ?
I have a CT scan booked for the 29 November for the planning of a plate to be made. I don’t yet know the date that they plan to remove my Tumour. the Plate will be quite large as it will be most of the back of my scull and some of the top being removed from what I can make out.
I’m not a newbie to having a brain tumour I have had three of them removed over the last 12 years. The first one was removed when I was 20 years old. This tumour will be my fourth. I also have another brain tumour that that are keeping an eye on. But that one has not changed for a few years now.
All the best
