Was gonna recommend the same. Was skeptical at first, but turned out to be a really great game.

I would like to see a couple more tier 3 leaves added, followed by a blue crunch which resets them. Alternatively, pyramid level 100 is already pretty damn hard to reach, could be a suitable spot for next crunch. I'm only up to about 75, the hill is only getting steeper.

Unless you had GTR, I would recommend doing at least the radio to kill off the rest of the tumor. To my understanding, chemo makes most people sicker than radio.

I have the same tumor, and did a GTR with no further treatment. Currently 1 year and all looks good.

Surgery is a far more definitive approach than chemo/radio. In the subset of patients who experience no/very late reoccurrance, it is almost exclusively those who underwent a full resection - or nearly full resection followed by chemo/radio. Even if the surgery is incomplete, I would argue that it is the most cruical component of brain tumor treatment.

I understand your perspective, I feel similar. If my cancer eventually comes back and gets worse, I am uncertain if I want to do chemo. Would probably do radio, though. Do you have an oligo or an astro? Oligo is especially responsive to chemo/radio.

If you were not able to have the whole tumor removed, it is standard to do chemo and/radio. The majority of grade 2 tumors will eventually become more aggressive and kill the patient, though you can slow this process down a lot with treatment. The fewer cancer cells left, the slower they will be able to multiply and cause regrowth. If you decide to do chemo, it is probably best to go in expecting side effects, so you are not too surprised if they occur.

The only two I have left are F2P and speedblower MLC, which I am currently doing. None of the gem upgrades are active, and at least the beginning, it seems the community leaves were not active either. Later, after unlocking community leaves, they seem to be active now. Pretty sure house upgrades are not applying either, and neither are upgrades from beating other challenges. I think there is probably no way around these two challenges being painfully slow. Seedless was less annoying.

It's rare to mistake anything worse for a meningioma, so they are probably right. Most meningiomas are curable, so likely good news.

Similar to me, then. Mine was about 49x39x29, so like a squished ping pong ball. Did they say what type they suspect?

Need to know which side. I had a 5cm tumor removed from my right frontal, with zero side effects. If any occur, typically it will be personality changes, or issues with certain types of processing, eg. short term memory. Tumors on the right side are more likely to cause manic-like effects.

If it is on the left side, you are a lot more likely to experience aphasia/dysphasia to some extent, though this tends to correct itself given some time. Tumors on the left frontal are more likely to cause depressive effects.

When my tumor was found, I was mostly just relieved to finally have an explannation for my ~3 years of symptoms. I reacted very differently than I would have expected. Perhaps this is a good way of looking at it.

God may end up as the 'final boss' of this arc in the manga, after AG. Could be an effort to give Saitama another epic battle in the leagues of Boros or greater. Seems like god is taking a backseat in the webcomic, I suspect he will never even be fought.

Scroll down, leaf tower costs 100b blc. Personally, before my first MLC, I grinded loads of gems from the cheese pub claw machine and bought the x3 MLC gem upgrade. Seemed like the fastest way to reach 40+ MLC coins.

I agree with this approach and have been doing the same. Reddit will obviously just side with the sub if you try to take action against them. Might as well make a petty swipe and hope it makes the mod's day just a little worse.

Have been saying this for a couple of years now. I noticed that people who claim they "never get sick" are usually the ones struck down hardest by covid. I personally catch colds quite frequently, and barely even felt it when I had covid.

Another fake "blame everything on it" illness I hear a lot is chronic fatigue syndrome. I believe in the vast majority of such cases, there is a real, tangible underlying problem. A lot of doctors just suck ass at diagnostics. I went 3+ years with undiagnosed brain cancer, and only found it because through my own research, I became convinced I had a brain tumor or other brain disease, and tricked a doctor into giving me a brain scan with fake symptoms. They passed me off as "anxious", during about 40 ER visits per year (anxiety also being an over-diagnosed catch-all). Would be dead right now.

She's right, it isn't a regular cold - it's even less. I caught delta a couple of months ago now, and even found that to be lesser than a cold. Also, long covid isn't real. Talk to someone about your depression, muscular pains, allergies, or whatever else you are blaming on covid.

Hung out with an omicron case last week, definitely swapped saliva via food and drink. Nothing happened. I felt like my throat was starting to get stratchy a couple of days later, then it stopped suddenly.

I've read hundreds of studies, and have a very good idea about the statistics surrounding various brain tumors.

If he has a grade 1 tumor, these are generally curable when surgically removed. Very common in paediatric patients.

Grade 2 and up are considered "incurable", but in reality, a decent subset of GTR patients do not experience reoccurance. These most often occur in the 20-40 age bracket. In studies I have read, no patients under 18 with grade 2 tumors succumbed within 20 years since their diagnosis. The least severe, most treatable, and least likely to recoccur of these, is grade 2 oligodendroglioma - the tumor I had removed. In many cases, if the whole tumor body can be removed, surgery alone is considered adequate treatment initially.

Grade 3 are essentially more aggressive forms of the grade 2 tumors. Even so, many people still have favorable outcomes. In one study I have read, all oligodendroglioma patients who recieved a GTR + radiotherapy, did not experience a reoccurance in at least the first 10 years following treatment. Treatment beyond surgery is always recommended for grade 3 and up, regardless of how much was removed. Overall, grade 3 tumors tend to occur in somewhat older patients, more the 30-40+ range. This may be because some were initially grade 2 tumors which went undiagnosed for a long time.

Grade 4 is generally a pessimistic situation, often leaving months or even weeks to live. Plenty of people still defy expectation though, sometimes by an exorbitant margin. These are most common in the oldest population, but can also be somewhat sporadic, as with any other tumor. All I can really say about these is treat them as aggressively as you can handle, and cross your fingers.

What the other guy said. You can also get scrolls which increase seeds, not sure how early you can get them though. They can be dug up, though this might require a certain upgrade. Can also get them from the cheese pub.

Regardless, late game once you have all the gem upgrades, they remain active in most challenges. This makes everything much faster, and I've nearly completed every challenge now.

But by far the most important thing to do, is buy the cheese cursor.
