Bones: The Doll in the Derby (2013)
NF type 2
While I have a disagree that people are somehow luckier to have type 1 or it is not bad. I have had 28 surgeries for mine. I have had to both elbows and wrists re-constructed because the tumours on the nerves were so large the could not removed. Prior to these surgeries I was losing the use of my hands.
I have had a tumour the size of a grapefruit on my left buttock that has required 5 surgeries, including one that had a massive hemorrhage resulting in emergency blood transfusions.
Additionally, NF has been shown to be link to cancer. I had stage 3 testicular cancer, plus several basil-cell carcinomas.
I am glad you've had a smooth ride lizzywitch91. However as you get older, you will likely end up like me, needing dozens of surgeries, and possibly developing cancer. I pray you are spared.
