  • Question: I am a 40-year-old female who had a partial resection in May, 2003. The path MRIs every 3-4 months. The only change has been a speck of a change from May, 2003 to this past MRI, March, 2004, but they tell me not to I was born. I am on anti-convulsants due to the fact that I still have small partial focal episodes every 4-6 days. I am actively trying to get pregnant with my first child before it is too late as I am 40 and things could change in the future. All my doctors tell me to go for it. In labor, the ob-gyn tells me she will be sure the baby slides right on out as to eleviate any pressure to my head. Has anyone ever known anyone with my issue?

    Oligos have a tendency to bleed into the tumor. The lifetime risk is about 15%. You must weigh this against your personal goals and desires. Being in expert hands will help.
