Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
What distinguishes a neurologist from a neurosurgeon?
The difference between a neurologist and a neurosurgeon is comparable to that between a cardiologist and a cardiologist: whereas the neurosurgeon can perform surgery to treat neurologic diseases, a neurologist diagnoses these conditions using diagnostic tests and non-surgical methods.
How long will I be hospitalised for?
With no problems, the typical duration of stay for patients having a craniotomy for a brain tumour is two nights and three hospital days. Patients who experience surgical problems might need to stay longer.
Are X-rays required for my appointment?
YES, please bring your X-ray, MRI, and CT films, or a CD with the pictures. Bring any further test findings with you as well.
What should I expect after discharge?
Most individuals who have surgery for a brain tumour recover fairly quickly. You will be limited to 4 weeks of easy exercise, though. This comprises:
- No heavy lifting above 10 pounds for four weeks.
- No bowel movement pressing for four weeks.
- No physically demanding activities, such as exercising or jogging
