"Needed surgery to remove rare pineal region..."

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Had one op to give blood supply to my brain tumour. Went in through my groin and op lasted five hrs. All good and home following day. Back again five wk later and had 15hr op which removed 80% of tumour. I could have suffered many awful effects from such surgery.death.paralysis. blindness.heart attack.strokes-but left hosp 12 days later in fair good state...poor hair do! Suffering from numbness in left foot which has improved dramatically over past 4mths. So I salute the consultant and their team.

So like i say..except for an iffy hair do....you would never know. So Thank You x
