The good thing is that brain surgery has come a long way. My dad had his first brain tumor diagnosed in 2002. It was on the pituitary gland and benign. Surgery alone took care of everything. In 2005 we discovered a second, larger, nastier brain tumor called a Chordoma which is cancerous. This one is not curable but we found an awesome specialist at Vanderbilt that has done 3 surgeries to clean out the tumor and here we are in 2013 and haven't seen any growth of the remaining cells in a couple years. It is really hard while going through it, but I want you to know that there are definite success stories. The early these things are treated, the better. Also, a second opinion is not a bad idea at all. My parents had multiple consultations with people "willing to give it a go" before they located the TN doctor that actually knew what he was doing for that specific tumor.
I'm sorry this is having to put your TTC on hold
I wish you and your parents the best of luck in this hard time.
