Brain Stem Tumour - devasted

50sQueen · 04/04/2018 02:59

My husband is having a biopsy tomorrow on his tumour which is in his brain stem. It is inoperable due to location and the biopsy itself could be fatal or lead to a low quality of life. I'm devasted, kids are being so brave (6 and 9). Husband is being incredibly brave . Three weeks ago we had a care free life and no real worries. Why! Why us? He's such a good man with a heart of gold, a gentle giant.

I’m so sorry to hear this. I’m hoping someone with more helpful words will come along soon. But Flowers and a virtual handhold from me for now.
I am hoping and praying tomorrow goes okay for him and you all.

I'm so sorry to read your post - what an awful thing to have happened to you all.

There is no reason why, it's just a terribly cruel thing.

I hope you've got some real life support around you.

I am so sorry Queen Flowers

Life is so very unfair and I’m so sorry about your dh’s Illness. You sound like an amazing dw and dm.

I hope the biopsy outcome will be the best it can be in these circumstances and will be thinking of you.

DrMadelineMaxwell · 13/08/2018 23:04

So sorry to read this.
I lost a very good friend to a brain stem tumour. He didn't actually ever realise he was ill. Just a few headaches, then couldn't be woken one morning and died only a few days later. Such a shock.
