My dear Meningimates,

Thank You for sharing your own experiences it can helps others more than you know to get regular MRI check ups at least every other year after 7 to 10 years post op. Believe me you are worth it! KOKO=Keep on keepin on!

Ron and Christine I was delighted to receive your posts on this new active thread. Of course I'm disappointed to hear news you both have regrowth after approximately ten years, Congratulations on your pregnancy Christine!
You both will be in my prayers to the Lord Of All for good outcomes.

Alan our list moderator wrote on the Facebook page version of our meningioma talk that he might have another retreat At Big Bear Lake, California this spring like he did 11 years ago, Jesse you and I were there. So good to hear from Elaine again too, I get to see some of our old m buddies on facebook if you enter "Meningioma Talk" in the FB search box.

          This is interesting as the same thing happened to me. I was receiving M e-mails and involved with the discussions and then it all stopped for a long time and now it resumed. Does anyone know why?

                  I am having weird side effects and am not sure if it is due to the mifeprex. Is anyone out there who takes Mifiprex willing to talk to me about it?

                    The only side effect I had was no more periods, which was a good thing. Where are you getting mifepristone? I haven't taken it in several years. Tumor still isn't growing. Carolyn Hutto meningioma... more

                      Well I am already in menopause. I order it directly from the Feminist Majority but you have to have a doctor to order it and monitor your progress.
