I just have a simple question, not looking for medical advice per say but I don't think i'm going to get a chance to talk to my neurosurgeon until next week and I just wanted some info. I have recently been diagnosed with a right frontal lobe mass of sorts...they won't know what it is until able to take a look. I was wondering if someone could tell me how the right front lobe is typically accessed in surgery...a flap of skin and cut of bone? Or is it more likely the whole top of my skull is coming off? I know I can ask my nurses here (I am still inpatient) but I guess i'm still feeling in denile and nervous to make it more realistic
Thought I would start here.
Thanks for listening and if anyone has ANY other advise to share as I go into this (probably having surgery next week) I will take it. While I have worked in pediatric and neonatal critical care for a little over 2 years now I have never experienced this side of the bed and I am pretty young (24) so this is all kind of a shock and happening pretty fast....I went to the neurologist thinking I had migraines and waited forever to go thinking I was just being silly...but the headaches WERE intense, now I know why! Wish I had gone sooner but what can you do?
