    No, no. The dementia joke was funny. I'm sorry you have to go through all this. I've seen family and friends who have had to have chemo, radiation, etc (all the fun stuff). It is not that much fun. You will get through this. Keep meditating and yoga-ing. :)

    Simone, too bad the tumor is back. I had prostate cancer & had radiation over the 2017 holidays, 3 years after my surgery. Now I get checked every 6 months, so far, nothing. HOPE THE BEST FOR YOU!!

    I understand that brain tumors don’t spread, but, I’ve done some research, and, although brain tumors don’t usually spread to other parts of the body, but, just a little tidbit of knowledge that was helpful for me to know, at least when I was going through this stuff, brain tumors can metastasize to other parts of the nervous system, or, just recur in general. Best of luck to you with radiation therapy. Ask about stereotactic radiotherapy. For me, this recurrence, it’s shortened treatment time for radiotherapy, and I didn’t have anywhere near the quantity, or quality of negative side effects.

We all have one chance of contributing positively to this world before we depart. So treasure this time while we are on earth.

    I watched a video called "radiation necrosis" basically the radiation will cause a sunburn in the brain and the swelling from the fluid will have to be taken down by medication/steroid. HBOT is approved therapy for radiation damage of blood vessels being cauterized from the radiation. HBOT forces oxygen into vessels and this forces the vessels to vasculari_e to the organs. Of course there are risks but there are with any kind of treatments. Also this team of Biomedical Engineers invented some glasses for surgeons to see tumor cells vs. healthy cells when they are excising tumors to make sure they grab it all. All my best. #keepgoing

    Ask your doctor about using memantine as a prophylactic to prevent memory problems and dementia from the radiation. My wife took it after the fact. The radiation caused her a lot of memory and dementia problems, but then when she started taking memantine, it was almost a complete recovery. It was only after the fact that I learned of the success others experienced using it before radiation to prevent problems before they occurred.

    I just "happened" to see this vvvideo (sorry. I stutter sometimes when texting, typing, or commenting). So anyway, I just want you to know that I will earnestly pray for you. Yeah, I 'm one of those weird "Christian" ppeople, lol. But seriously, I know how annoying it can be to have someone push their beliefs on you without even asking if you're interested, or willing to listen. So I just want to say that if you are interested in making a reservation in heaven ( and I'm praying and hoping that you won't need it for a long, long time, but better safe than sorry), I have my home reserved there, and I can tell you how, if you're interested in knowing. Btw, after I saw this video, I watched the one you did on weightlessness. That was pretty cool! So take care and God bless!

    It's lovely how you consider this to be something potentially not all bad. I agree: Who are we humans to judge whether the things that happen to us are all bad...
    How about being badass brain tumour builder girl? A bit long to be catchy, but it reminds me of how most super heroes (and heroines) have their... thing. Like Tony Stark with his heart shrapnel thingy. To me you're kind of a real-world Tony Stark. And as long as this is contained it hopefully does nothing but make you even more badass.
    Thank you very much for your honesty! As someone who hasn't been sick a lot, has never had any major injuries and hasn't ever gotten into a fist fight I can relate to the curiosity that such things can trigger.
    My very best wishes to you, may you find whatever amazing good might be hidden in all of this! :)

    Simone.. please ask your doctor about Nmenda (memantine). It's an alzheimers medication that has very little to no side effects. With radiation therapy, it is used prevent radiation-induced cognative decline. Additionally ask to have a cognative function test done before treatment and at intervals after. I think the test was Hopkins memory recall or something along those lines. My wife underwent treatment at mdanderson in houston and this is the experimental treatment she recieved. Insurance gave her grief about covering it because it is experimental, but we used the good rx app to find a pharmacy that had it for waaay cheaper at some pharmacies.

    Hi Simone. Your popularity has gone far beyond your country. I'm from Russia and also always happy to watch your videos. You must be sick of the sympathy and the tearful letters... I would have. And I just invite you to visit Russia Altai mountains. when you're done with all the Medical stuff. Clean air a change of scenery and new experiences will charge you for the production of new and even more Shitty robots. if you get bored, write paparde@yandex.ru

    I have a macroprolactinoma and as soon as I found out I named it Francis. He’s a French bastard and #tumorhumor is where it’s at. But when I started to tell people I was scared of getting the reputation of Tumor Girl as well. I actually kinda got choked up when you started talking about it because it was the first time I’ve been able to relate to someone who knows what it’s like.
    Stay strong and burn that bastard

    As someone who's been struggling with tumours for... almost 15 years now (Didn't realize this till writing it down) I get it. There's some... complex emotions that come along with it. There's a lot of things you start viewing very differently. The way you look at any kind of relationships because you don't know how long you'll have or how... capable you will be to give your loved ones the things they need, nevermind deserve. The way you look at the future and how difficult it is to imagine yourself being there at times. The way you look at death in that you will fight it till the end, but there's a very small bit of excitement in not having to fight every damned day, to know actual rest.
    What I'm trying to say is, it's ok lady dude. You're not tumour girl (worst super hero ever), just as little as you were flu girl when (if) you got the flu, nor were you any other kind of illness girl. Keep being who you are despite the bad that try to take it away, not because of it. Then you'll be fine I think...
    Phew this was supper sappy and maybe a bit dark but yeah, it's nice to see others fighting but not making it "their brand". Stay awesome, keep enjoying the sciences and inspiring people to have more fun with it.

    But babe I feel you, My tumours (paragangliomas) came back threefold last year after my surgery. We are looking at possibly radiation eventually but waiting for it to get worse before we can do anything.
    So I send many many good thoughts, vibes and all that. Fuck Brian and fuck this hopelessness you might be feeling. You are beautiful and strong and you will overcome this. I hope you are well.
