    I hope to get back to walking fully again. After a big ankle operation things didn't go well and I'm only gradually building up on my walking. Living in a most beautiful walking area, I would like to walk well again. What about you? Any plans, hopes or dreams for next year?

    Just to try to enjoy what I do and to be more tolerant of stupid people. That’s my aim anyway..

    I want my daughter to get her brain tumour removed and to recover from the operation in time to go on the holiday she has booked at Easter.

    Retire. But I'm willing to trade that for your daughter's full recovery.

    Oh inky, I had no idea. That would definitely be on my 'hopes' list for you.
    A friend is about 2 years on from her brain tumour operation. :)

    Thank you all. We thought we were nearly there then they wanted more scans before deciding what kind of surgery. Two steps forward one step back.

    Be prepared for a long full recovery. My friend's operation was something like 7 hours and they were warned of potential longterm damage. I know she struggled for a good 6 months t do anything which required lots of 'thinking' and she apologised for not always being 'able to find her words'. Following anything which involved a sequence of actions was difficult and she did get very tired. As I said just over 2 years on I think she'd say she's back to full fitness / normality. They reckon her tumor had been 'growing' longterm for several years undiagnosed,and yet she has made a full recovery.

    Wishing your daughter all the very best @InkyP

    I hope to get back up to normal exercise levels on the knee that I broke over three years ago. I had another operation after two years and frustratingly, that made some things worse. I will keep steadily working on it.

    I also want to continue enjoying my work.

    I will hope for the best possible outcome for @InkyP’s daughter.
    I hope for my family to be well and happy and I want to find something to appreciate in each day.

    My beloved sister in law's lung cancer has returned and I hope that she recovers from the chemo, etc. She too had/has a benign brain tumour which is 'zapped' regularly. In her words 'I must have been someone awful in a previous life'.

    I also hope that someone sorts out the country and we get some sort of reality.

    That those friends who are suffering appalling grief and loss find the strength to keep going and find happiness again.
    That those suffering from ill health are part of the lucky percentage who go on to recover.

    As always, to eat more healthily and take more exercise!

    My wife is 10 years on from hers.It takes a lot longer to recover than one thinks, but younger in age might help.

    Mrs oldy took several years to finally be well eneough to do things,One result for her and i stress her, was to lose a little of her sight as the op was near her optic nerve.Hers had been growing for over 30 years and only found it whenshe stated fitting and they did a scan,I am so gratefull to the wonderful surgeons at the hospital in London.

    Again I had no idea @oldsomeman . My friend's had also been growing for many years and I know surgeons were astonished by how large it was. They had wonderful sugeons too.:D And a lot of people praying. :)
