    New to forum ... Oligodendroglioma ll 2005

    In July, 2005, age 61, I was diagnosed with brain tumor...lots of testing and finally surgery Feb. 14, 2006. Oligodendroglioma ll removed from left hippocampus. May 2007 I had a seizure, phoned hospital, went back in for lots more testing then more surgery and left hippocampus removed. Whew, I miss that thing.
    But steady MRI testing says I'm doing very well and all is clear.

    Thank you. My neurosurgeon (I see him after every MRI) said, "Amazing. This is amazing". And my annual MRI was changed to every 18 months and now every 24 months!!

    Excellent!
    Your story will give great encouragement to people who show up here with new oligodendroglioma diagnoses in the future.
