Brain tumour surgery

When my late father had his brain tumour removed, I must admit there was some shock. When I saw him, both of his eyes were bruised. He had a large semicircle of staples at the time. The scars remained. No one told me that this bruising was from the surgery. I cried, as I thought dad had fallen.

What they also didn't tell us, was the headaches are common with brain tumours. He had many signs of pain, which I thought at the time. Staff were reluctant to relieve his pain.

John McCain, after his surgery. You can clearly see his bruising.
