I want to live well with a meningioma

Being diagnosed with a meningioma can often signal a whirlwind of medical appointments, scans and treatment plans, usually at a time when your life is in turmoil. At some point, things will start to slow down. You may have finished your current course of treatment, or if you are on active surveillance, the time between your scans may have decreased. It is at this point that you may find yourself thinking, ‘What is next?’

Your treatment plan and pathway will be individual to you, but the feeling of wanting to know what support you can have to help with your quality of life is something that many people will experience. See this support as an entitlement.

In this section, we will talk about what support should be available to you, how you can get it and some strategies to support this.

You will also find some practical information about reapplying for your driving licence, travel options and finances and benefits support.

If you find you have any further questions about what is discussed on this page, don’t hesitate to call us on 01983 292 405, or email your support specialist or hello@brainstrust.org.uk. We are here to help you thrive.
