Mr Chris Mascott 8 Years, 3 Months ago  
I just want to let everyone know about this amazing surgeon. He is based in the Beacon Hospital in Dublin, Ireland. My husband Conor had his brain surgery two weeks ago. He was previously told that it was too dangerous to operate on his grade 2 astrocytoma. The tumour was in his supplementary cortex and some of it in the motor cortex. The previous surgeon also told Conor that if they operated they wouldn't be able to remove even 50% of the tumour and the surgery would permanently paralyse him. Thankfully, two years after diagnosis we finally found a surgeon who genuinely wanted to help Conor. So on the 29th of June, Conor had his surgery. He had 81% of his tumour removed. We are thrilled with the result. He did suffer temporary weakness on his left hand side but that's almost gone now. We were well warned that it would happen after surgery in the supplementary cortex. It's called Supplementary Motor Syndrome. He was home two weeks after surgery. Unfortunately, his tumour is now grade 3 so he will need radiation treatment. Mr Mascott is an amazing man. He explained everything about surgery to us in detail and gave us so much time to ask questions. The moral of our story is always get more than one opinion. In fact, get as many as you can. Brain tumours are relatively rare. If you live in a country with a small population like Ireland, then the surgeons often don't have the experience or equipment to carry out complex surgeries. Pm me, if anyone wants any details. Best of luck everyone
