    I woke up to my husband having a grand mal seizure  3 yrs ago next month (42 yr old PE teacher - never sick a day in his life!). He was rushed to the ER and after an entire day of testing, we were told he had a brain tumor in his left frontal/temporal lobe. He had a full resection and we found out it was Oligo, grade 2. Praise God, he had no side effects and was back to work in a month (and was wanting to return...

      Welcome to this wonderful message board. My husband was diagnosed with a Stage 2 oligodendroglioma in March 2011. I awoke to him having a grand mal seizure in bed. After scans and MRI in the ER, they knew he had a tumor in the left frontal lobe and we quickly decided on a craniotomy 3 days later. His wonderful neurosurgeon was able to get all of the tumor that he could see (we know there is always some "residual"). A...

        His tumor was a little larger than a walnut - they said it was a very slow-growing tumor and probably had been growing for years. Yes, his was near the speech area and that was the first thing the NO checked for when he came out of surgery. Also of concern was his short-term memory. Both were completely fine.  He has not really changed his diet - he is a meat and potatoes kind of guy and going completely organic...

          Hey, My husband was diagnosed (after I awoke to him having a grand mal seizure in bed) with an oligo in March 2011. He is a PE teacher and has never been sick a day in his life. He was 42 at the time. It was in his left frontal lobe and a grade 2. He was rushed to the ER on a Saturday and had a complete resection on Wednesday. He was home by Friday and within that week our world had been turned upside down (I know y...

            Interesting. I have been doing my own research into the correlation between EMF radiation (esp. from power lines) and brain tumors. We lived just a few dozen feet from huge transmitters for 8 years and my husband was diagnosed with an oligo, grade II. We later found out that the woman who lived in the home before us was also diagnosed with a brain tumor shortly after moving out of that house (needless to say we moved...

              Hi and welcome to the board. My husband was diagnosed in March 2011 with an Oligo II. I awoke to him having a grand mal seizure on a Saturday afternoon, he was rushed to the ER and diagnosed that afternoon with a brain tumor. He had surgery the following Wednesday to remove it (it was in the left temporal lobe). He had a wonderful neurosurgeon, Dr. Koeleveld, in Raleigh, NC. He felt like he got as much as "all of it"...

                I am in the same boat as you! I woke up early one morning to my 42 year old husband (a very active, healthy PE teacher) having a grand mal seizure. Never want to see that again! We found out it was an oligo grade II, probably growing for years.  I am very curious about the massive power lines in our backyard of our former home where wer lived for 8 years (we have since moved!). I found out that the former owner ...

                  I completely understand. My husband was diagnosed with Oligo grade II and our phone call with the lead neurosurgeon there was disconcerning at best. He acted like we were bothering him and he really did not seem all that interested in helping us. I hung up the phone and just knew in my heart that we already had the best neurosurgeon, Dr. Koeleveld! He was the neurosurgeon on call when my husband was in the ER after h...

                    Wow - I can totally relate to your story. In March 2011, I woke up to my husband having a grand mal seizure (will always remember that!) and then learned in the ER that he had a tumor in his left temporal lobe as well. A few days later, he had surgery. His neurosurgeon (who was awesome!) said he believes he got all of it (at least all of what they can see with MRI) and also suggested the wait and see approach as it w...

                      Good evening, My husband had an oligo tumor (grade II) in left temporal/frontal lobe and had a resection (as close to 100% as possible). His oncologist's approach is "Wait and See" so he has repeat MRIs every 6 months. It has been 15 months now - so far so good. Thank the Lord! We live in NC but did not go to Duke. I was wondering what kind of tumor and what grade was your husband's tumor? Thanks for sharing the e...
