Thank you for your response Sharon. I so desperately needed to hear that. Thank goodness for the Internet or I would have never found this site. I tried finding a support group in my county and it doesnt seem we have one. I will throw all my expectations to my recovery from both surgeries out the window because like you mentioned when we have them is when we feel the most disappointed which is exactly what happened with me when I saw the surgeon. I prepared my self to hear that he was only going to be removing the tumor and everything will be quick and easy so when he brought me back to the real world it was way to much for me to process all at once.
