I too have a brain tumor, is yours a meningioma? My doctors have also said that my two tumors have nothing to do with my migrains. I have been on Topamax sience March and find it works the best so far. I have suffered most of my life with headaches and have tried most all of the new drugs and most have worked for a time. I keep hoping I will outgrow them. I will soon turn 65, and still waiting.
The best thing you can do is read and find out as much as you can about the kind of tumor you have. When I first found out I had these two tumors I thought my life was over, that was five years ago. Now I realize that there are all kinds of tumors and not all will kill you. I have a MRI once a year and enjoy each day hoping I don't get run over by a bus.
