Last Saturday evening my 12 year old daughter said she had double vision and took herself to bed. This continued through Sunday.
We got her to the doctors Monday morning and they could find nothing wrong and said we should get her eyes checked at the opticians. He noticed inflammation of the optic nerve but no reason for it and said we should go to A&E and see a children's doctor. Apart from her vision there was nothing wrong with her so we came home but had to come to the eye dept next day.
Here we had five hours of tests and then passed onto the children's assessment unit. More checks, then a CT scan theN a MIR scan.
A tumour was found. Tuesday evening we went to Southampton General Hospital. She had more scans the following day and was due for surgery on Thursday. This took place on Friday and the surgeon Owen Sparrow removed all of the tumour over a period of 6 hours.
She has bubbles of air in her brain that she can sense and 2 small bones are rubbing together that make her feel sick but she has moaned only a couple times.
We have been told she can come home on Tuesday. She has total memory recall up to the op and intermittent memory post op although this should return quite soon.
The tumour was found on Tuesday and removed on Friday thank you NHS.
