Story told by MedicAlert Customer
20 years ago I underwent my first brain operation. I was 19 years old when I began developing severe headaches which sometimes blurred my vision. As time passed, my headaches occurred more frequently and at times, I would blackout.
Doctors first thought my symptoms could’ve been related to a more serious vision problem, or possibly from the few minor concussions I had experienced as a kid. After several tests including a CT scan, the doctors found a benign brain tumor pressing on my frontal lobe.
