We have two kids,one 10 wks old,and im just wondering how we are gonna deal with it all when she leaves hospital.
all help and encouragement appreciated!
Hi, I am a relative newbie aswell, but received surgery to remove my colloid cyst nearly two years ago at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, UK. To begin with I had a major memory defecit, which meant I couldn't even recognise close family members, that slowly improved however and now, even though I haven't returned to work yet, I am absolutely desperate to do so and looking forward to a long and successful, though briefly interupted, career. I have done a lot of reading since my operation and am convinced that in most cases a Colloid Cyst is something we can all recover from. With patience, understanding and encouragement, I'm sure your wife will make a full recovery; - I quickly re-passed my Driving Test (a UK requirement after brain injury) and I feel fully fit now and eager to get back to my job. I hope your wife makes as complete a recovery as I have. andyh
