It would be good to hear from him even if it is just one post for the time being. If you are reading this I hope things are progressing well for you.
Well said A. Orlov - that goes for me too.

Thank you all for your get well messages, its very humbling. I am back home now after the worst 5 weeks of my life, its going to be a long road, the tumour was completely benign,the Histology report comfirmed this i spent 5 weeks in total at Soton neuro and poole. it was a very big op, the tumour had been growing for 3 years at a millimetre a day. I am making great strides during the day, the night is a nightmare, hard to sleep, brain saying one thing body saying another.
This op frontal lobe tumour comes with very nasty "friends" in the shape of panic attacks and generally come on at night, this is part of the recovery process, they are very scary and not nice.
The 3 years it had been growing i knew nothing untill October, when symptoms started to appear.
I am eternally greatful this came down heads and not tails, otherwise there would be no story to tell. but the recovery is still very hard. you can very easily drop into depression.
As the brain recovers and matter grows back and a lot of work was done to remove all the tumour so the panic attacks should receed. I got about half a dozen good nights sleep in both hospitals, i spent Chriastmas and new year in hospital. medication is minimal but i did have a reaction to the Amatrypadene which means at the moment i have to cut food up into very small pieces, not great. I have a lovely neat scare right across my forhead on the hair line which was stapled and also had disolvable sutchers.
My surgeon is top class and did a very good job, recovery will take a fair while but im determined to walk that road, i have a follow up scan in March and that is fully expected to come back clear, but i will still be nervous.
I would like to thank everybody who contrabuted to this this thread, im etenally greatful to you all who ever you support, i hope to see you all out there sometime during next season. Thank you all very much..
Great to hear you are on the road to recovery. However long the road is I'm sure all on the BSF are cheering you on xx
Hope the recovery goes well, give you plenty of time to pick some winners!
Glad things went well and that you are now back home. Take it easy and look forward to when you can attend Wimborne Road.
Great news fella.
Never lose the faith as you walk down the road of your recovery.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
I have a friend who had something very,very similar. This was about 15 years ago and he made a full recovery and is fit as a fiddle in every way. Obviously, each case is a little different but I'm hoping that you, like he did, will be back up to full speed soon.
Best wishes for your future recovery, Starry.
Good to hear from you again, though it’s not been good for you I do hope it is onward and upward all the way now. Best wishes. Joe
