I hope you are home and recovered. I have a story very similar to yours. My first surgery turned into 3. First I hemorrhaged from the stomach (2) and then the leak (3). My fragment that was left grew back in 14 months, so I had radiation last October. Now the bugger is growing again. I go back in April and we decide then what the next course of action is  ::)

So sorry to hear this.  You have had such a rough go of it.  Any chance the CSF leak is causing the hearing problem on the right side?
