berisa Posted April 4, 2004 Share Posted April 4, 2004 Today we met the neurosurgeon, it is totally bad and desparate. My dad is now suffering from bacteria infection. He has 2 types of bacteria, one is Staph, one is Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. He said these two are not easy to treat and life-threatening. Moreover, they found dad may have a new brain tumor that found in the latest Brain CT and the shadow is around 6cm large. This is why my dad's left arm & left leg are weak. If this is tumor, dad's current situation does not allow additional surgery or chemo because of the current infections, Gamma knife is not the option because of the size. He may be paralysed (left side of the body)! He will suffer more pain at the wound and having severe headache. The neurosurgeon commented that my dad may has 3 months and he most likely could not be out of the hospital again. I am so upset and I think I have nothing to help my father.
