Brain surgery complication

Over 4 years ago I received surgery to remove a tumour from my brain. This has left what I describe as a dip in my skull. It is not too big but quite deep. It did not cause a problem until about 10 months ago when it became quite smelly. I have been back and forward to the doctors but they can’t explain it. I have been back to neurosurgery but they say it’s nothing they can help with. I wondered if anyone else had had a similar problem post brain surgery and found a solution; even after washing it smells!

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I'm sorry to read about the problems you've had since you've had a tumour removed from your brain and it's natural to want to find a solution.

    As you know the online community is divided into different support forums, so I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you might also like to consider joining and posting in the brain cancer forum as you'll then connect directly with others who may have experienced something similar.
