*I think people think “benign” means it’s just some piece of lumpy tissue that can be taken out and everything will get back to normal. Once the hair grows back people think everything else is back to where it was pre-surgery., too. I know I have learned a lot about benign tumors, and the brain in particular, since my surgery. I realize I will never be the same as before, so I am trying to make my deficits fit in to my post surgery life. You better believe if I hear of someone in my community that has a tumor I will contact them and offer them support!
