I am a 27 year old female living on Maui. In 2009 I was diagnosed with Diabetes Insipitus which lead to a head MRI and the discovery of a tumor. In March I had a crainiotomy to
remove a benign tumor from my hypothalamus. The surgery was unsuccessful due to
the fact the tumor is highly vascularized however a sample was obtained and the tumor was determined to be a Hemangioblastoma. Then in June I underwent Cyber Knife radiation on the bottom half
of the tumor and most likely will undergo round 2 of treatment in December.
I was lucky enough to not have any side effects from treatment and I’m feeling
great! Any thoughts on when I can return to diving? I’ve got my doctors
stumped and I can’t wait to get back in the water!
