I had a large Meningioma brain tumor removed in the year 2000.It was benign.My Neurologist told me I had some brain damage caused by the tumor.Does anyone know if an operation like that shortens your life.I was told once by someone that your head was not meant to be opened up like that.Thanks for any answers I recieve.
