Julie was scheduled to be discharged on Friday following surgery to remove a brain tumor on Monday.
Two weeks earlier, Julie began having serious headaches and vomiting. She went to her local ER, where they discovered a mass in her brain after an MRI. She was sent to Khaled Aziz, MD, at Allegheny General, who, upon seeing the MRI said to Julie, “I’ve seen worse, but this is pretty serious.” Julie decided to have the surgery in a few weeks, but her condition worsened and she came back to Allegheny General sooner than planned. Dr. Aziz, who was out of town, drove directly from the airport without going home, to see Julie. He performed surgery later that day. Julie’s headaches are now gone and she’s been cleared to go home.
