I'm a Pheonix

Recently had brain surgery to remove a cyst filled with liquid attached to a lesion that had been treated twice with Radio Stereo Surgery.   So happy to have a diagnosis that all has been removed successfully and the "lesion" turned out to be benign also.   Medical practitioners thoughts are it occurred due to having two radio stereo surgery in the same place.   Well at least it killed the cancer. 
What a relief.   I feel like a Pheonix.  Have fatigue at the moment but look forward to getting back to "wellness".

    Good news! I had that same delirious feeling when I discovered the lump under my right arm was a schwannoma (had to look that up!) and benign! A spring in your step and all's right with the world. Enjoy!

    Schwannoma sounds like Sean Connery mispronouncing someone's name....

    It was actually someone's name - a Dr Schwann to be precise. I am not sure I would want a lump, benign or otherwise, entirely made of one kind of cell that lurks in nerve sheaths named after me, but each to his own. I am still waiting for this information to be useful in a crossword or something
