My name is Shari. I am a survivor. I am in remission for the 2nd time. Initially in 2003 when my tumor was discovered, I was also told it was benign but later found out that is actually slow growing. I had a partial resection surgery. in 2003 needing no treatments just continual MRI’s for 5 years until it recurred in 2008. I had surgery again only I had 6 weeks of radiation and the chemo pill Temodar. After that I had 6 months of the chemo pill Temodar just as a precaution.
They need to be honest with her benign is not the correct wording. It’s actually slow growing it should not be ignored. Agree anyone ? I have my quarterly MRI on July 5th so it is a continual process.
