OLIGODENDROGLIOMA, and or GLIOBLASTOMA,wondering Are these the Samething or totally different? And what Are they? Would these grow back in my Brain in the Same spot and cause me to have Seizures again? Cause Back in November 17th of 2003 I went in for surgery and removed the tumor and my short term memory on my Left side of the Brain where it was connected. Are there side affect's after the brain surgery during Fall and Spring, Since I'm taking Carbotral 600 MG at night? Since I haven't a MRI for 4 years and a EEG for 3 years ago and when I did everything stayed the same nothing is happening or growing back, when would I have to go back in for those tests, or am I Clear? Is possiable for the tumor to grow back if so how fast or slow would it grow back or would it stay empty? To avoide having it grow back, what would I have to do, to not have it grow back? And if it does would it be twice as bad as the First time I had it? I haven't had a Seizure since my Surgery back in 2003. It all stopped when my Tumor and Short term memory was removed. but what are these systems that I posted at the beginning of this Message?

In anywhere from fifty to eighty percent of cases, the first symptom of an oligodendroglioma is the onset of seizureactivity. They occur mainly in the frontal lobe. Headachescombined with increased intracranial pressureare also a common symptom of oligodendroglioma. Depending on the location of the tumor, any neurological deficit can be induced, from visual loss, motor weakness and cognitive decline. - Wikipedia
