I had brain surgery for an intact anuryrsm; they cut

I had brain surgery for an intact anuryrsm; they cut my jaw off drilled a circle about the natural dent beside my right eye. I was home 3 days later with lots of steroids and 1 darvocet for pain x 2/day. Neither I nor my family were informed that I had a stroke in the Executive Function. With a BS in Psychology and an M Ed, I was given no notice nor therapy. My daughters were petrified and said I was really mean (30, 31). That was 11 years ago and to this day nothing..A slight infarct (my ass-small). I found out almost 2 years later by getting papers from Hoag and taking them to my friend's ex husband, Dr Fortanasce in Arcadia,CA. They didn't do the proper test and thanks to the 60s pysch course I did it all myself and can usually "pass for normal".
Face blindness of new people, loss of confidence and my job-a RE appraiser while my insurance rose from $354 to $2,500/month -Blue Shield dropped me the month after I was diagnosed in 9/2005. Operation 5/2006, working every day to pay the insurance and mortgage. ER also told me my fall in 2014 was nothing; after literally appearing and nagging Newport Orthopedics I finally said "squeeze my thighs"-one was muscle, the other masked potatoes. The MRI 2.5 months later showed cracked tibia, posterior horn, torn meniscus and broken ACL and stretched MMLs. I just kept trucking up and down and living alone in 1 3 story house with 29 steps...I am now getting some shots in my knee (r) for bone on bone on the interior side.. the whipped cream on my whole body is SLE for a long time and cysts on my pain or meds other than Tylenol for that. Luckily i live in Southern CA; way better than Pgh and Chicago. I have never been able to convince my family I'm ok. My shrink (10 years) thinks I'm a walking miracle and do 2 other neurologists. Me...I'm a limping miracle. Any suggestions?

I had a meningioma removed 6 months ago by brain surgery. I am swelling now everyday and the Doctor that did it is saying that either I can have an infection or an allergic reaction to the cement and they may have to cut me back open. He put me on 4mg steroids for two weeks. I was reading my report and it in the Diagnoses stated benign neoplasma of meninges, unspecified (D32.9) and Edema, unspecified (R60.9), what does this mean? YYYY@YYYY

my son has been having severe headaches and the CT Scan showed a 4cm mass behind his right eye with spreading and swelling of the right frontal lobe. Now he is on anti-inflammation medication to decrease the swelling, then he will go to surgery for removal and biopsy of the mass. What are the risks of the surgery and is any brain damage possible?

My brother had brain surgery a year ago in Brazil. He has not yet had the protective covering where they took part of his skull away. The drs. there say it is safe for him to fly back to the U.S. where we hope he will get faster treatment. Is flying safe for him?
