Good news!

I had a brain tumour removed on March 31st 2010, I recovered quite quickly and felt ready for work by November 2011. It took me a year but I finally started work last November. I still have a few problems with my memory and my cognitive ability has decreased considerably but I am happy to be alive and feel very positive about the future.

I have had a lot of help and would like to thank everyone. My friends and family and all the health professionals.

I received great news last week, my latest MRI scan was unchanged with no sign of recurring meningioma and I wont need another MRI until March 2015.

  • Thats what we liked to hear. Another one of the Headway crew who has been given excellent news and has not let a little setback hold them back. The cognitive side of things should get back to normal within time, we hope.

    Good luck and stay in touch.
