  1. I was diagnosed with a low grade glioma in January 2017 after having a seizure. I was not aware of my ailment until about 10 days after the seizure when I woke up in hospital and doctors told me what they found. I then had surgery to drill a hole in my head for the purpose getting a biopsy. The results agreed with the diagnosis. I was told that I would need to have yearly MRI to monitor any changes should they occur. At the same time I was given literature to read about brain tumours. The one thing that I got from the literature was that in the US they no longer believe in the wait and watch idea that is the norm in Canada. Does anyone out there know why this difference exists?
