    That is great to hear, but to let you know, I’ve been through 3 surgeries, Chemo and Radiation and have been around longer then the initial 10 year window (2005). Live everyday like it’s your last. Some the die from other causes hopefully do the same (especially care accidents and such)

      I am sorry to hear that, when I was diagnosed back in 1995 they said the same to me, 8-10 years. I went through three surgeries (and the last one was cool since they woke me up halfway through to have me speak to make sure it doesn’t affect my speech. Even gave me photos of my brain). I’m still here and they now estimate 13 years to go. Processes are better now, so I wish you the best to get as many years as you ...

        Dont let this worry you too much (though i know its hard) but i was diagnosed with the same back in 1995 when i had a seizure. Ive been through three surgeries through that time and completed both Chemo and Radiation. Outside of memory loss and concentration, both me and the doctors agree that a positive attitude is the best medicine available! Keep positive and don't let this bring you down! I keep my sense of...

              Mine was originally diagnosed in 1995 and I've been through 3 surgeries ( first a biopsy, then a "take what we can out" surgery, and finally this last September when a growth the size of a quarter grew within a year. Did radiation and now in Chemo (pills only, couldn't handle the IV). They watch me every two months through MRIs and haven't seen a change yet. They are watching for a location that there is some ther...

                Seems as if mine is about the same. The first seizure though started back in 1995. They did the initial biopsy, and the siezures continued once a month or so. After being released from the military I continued treatments through the VA. Basically every 6 months I went through MRIs and then MUSC (Medical University South Carolina) decided to simply try to remove as much of it as possible in 2008, of course being f...

                  Thank you for the information you shared. It can be difficult to get clear answers from my doctors to fully answer my questions about life expectancy. I can understand they don't want to let people to over stress on information that is not simply black and white. Sometimes it can be more helpful from another persons personal experience instead of compiled data. I suppose the one good thing is that I know someti...

                    I was diagnosed back in 1995, been through two surgeries and was lowered to just annual MRIs. After the last MRI they saw a large growth show up next to the area they had already removed. Within one year a 1.5mm x 2.7mm was found and they scheduled a surgery within a month. They removed all they could and are now putting me through Radiation and then Chemo to get all out of my brain. It's at MUSC (Medical Univers...
