I had a brain tumor. Then I had some brain surgery. Then I made a video about it. I've missed you. Thank you for being here, and for all of your nice messages, terrible jokes and care packages. It's been an onslaught of love unlike anything I could ever have imagined. I wouldn’t wish this experience on anyone, but all of you made it feel like a bizarre blessing. #brainblessed #tumorhumor #whothefuckuseshashtagsinyoutubedescriptions #apparentlyido 👇 places where I post stuff 👇 PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/simonegiertz TWITTER: http://twitter.com/simonegiertz FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/simonegiertz/ INSTAGRAM: https://instagram.com/simonegiertz/

Comments from Youtube

Demika 925 : I just learned that I have a brain tumor, and I'm having surgery in about 3 weeks. Your videos about your experiences about this have really helped me. Thank you, and I'm glad you're okay

booknerd234 : "That did not come from my butt It came from my pee hole" I laughed for 2 years

Steven ryann : Sim: you don't want to upset the person that's about to... Expectation: cut your brain open Reality: Shave your head

Thomas Anderson : That price tag... how do americans keep voting Republican?

Kat : I’ve never been more excited about a YouTube notification in my entire life!!! So happy to see you back and I am in awe of your consistent optimism. Welcome back <3

trackerrrr : Coming from a family full of nurses, PAs, and a doctor, I can tell you that if nurses only had to deal with farts they would be happy campers.

Shaurya K. Panwar : New haircut is sexy. The scar also looks like a design suiting you when you tie your hair back.

jeric_ synergy : Simone was fortunate to have health insurance. Remember MANY people would just have to forego her treatment (and die), or they might get treated, and then lose their house, car, and everything. The US health "system" is really ludicrous: it's just a one-way valve to insurance executives' bank accounts. It's a casino, and the whole country loses. Except for insurance companies. Vote blue.

Alána Lugosi : I have no idea how to get ahold of you besides just commenting. You posted thing two days after my 30th birthday. I only say that because I had my first MRI when I was 19, they found something.. First brain surgery in 2009, and I'm still here. Grade 3 Astrocytoma. Two surgeries, chemo, radiation. I would really like to have a convo, you can vent, have someone to talk to who's been thru it, as I know it SUCKS. It is not easy. It can be so frustrating. I know it because I felt it myself and want nothing but to help others. I also have been home-bound for about a decade, my best friends are my Mother and my boyfriend. I'm sure this will never be read by you, nor do I expect a response from you.. Just know that I'm here to talk to, vent to, cry to, bitch to, you name it. And, I named my tumour too-- I'll tell ya the names and why, if ya even care. I truly hope everything continues to be awesome opossum, but again. I'm here. <3

Real Engineering : New hairstyle looks great. Titanium mesh on the brain sounds pretty badass too. Welcome back Simone.

Manuel Morán Soto : You really rock. What a way of facing such big challenge in life. Hat off.

Ac Bitmugs : Wow,​ I literally had the same type of surgery the same time you did!

Simon the Viking : WOAH DOOOD THAT'S A COOL SCARR!! (I find scars really cool and kinda beautiful in some way, they're kinda a way to say that you've experienced stuff in life)

valedictorianism : So glad to know you're okay. All the love and good vibes in the world to you. You had brain surgery and you were in hospital for TWO DAYS??? I had surgery on my wrist and they held me there for TWO WEEKS! Luckily you had a more efficient hospital handy :-P

ICMonster : "my brain seems to be working just as fine, or as poorly as before" yeah Simone is 100% fine 😉

Sandie Radcliffe : I don’t think you are ever going to see this, but I am so thankful to have found your channel today. I was born with Spina Bifida and have had back issues my entire life, but I was mobile and could walk even after surgery. Three months ago I was diagnosed with an incurable disease in my spine that is quickly paralyzing me and was told they could not go in to operate because my spine is too weak. In those 3 months I have already lost the feeling in my right leg. About two months ago my jaw and tongue started to have what I can only describe as muscle spasms that cause me to stutter and then days later my eyes started twitching. They sent me for an mri and I thought this is stupid it is probably just the disease causing it and it is a waste of money. Well, it came back as a mass effect pressing my cranial nerve. What that mass effect is we do not know because I am allergic to contrast dye so to be safe they didn’t give me any. Now I have to go back and have the mri re done with contrast and without and also have an mra which I think has something to do with seeing the vessels, but I’m trying to stay off google because it spikes my anxiety. My neurologist has told me I will most likely need brain surgery and radiation even if it isn’t cancerous. I am turning 49 in February, I am a wife and mother of 2 young men and this has brought me to my knees. I am frightened. I have bitch blocked the calls to set up the testing like doing that is going to make it go away. This is the first time I have “told” anyone about the brain issue yet. My life has rapidly changed in 3 months time and I honestly don’t know how to handle it. I can’t work, I can’t walk without a walker and I have to use a wheelchair because I’m not allowed distance and I hate it. I can’t stop my brain from thinking of all the things I can’t do anymore and I think it is because it all happened so fast. I tripped on vacation and thought when it didn’t heal that I probably ruptured another disc and now all of this has come out of that and I did rupture discs, but they can’t fix them because my spine sucks ass. Your video about your brain tumor being back popped up on my feed today out of the blue like it was meant to be there for me to see so I’m going through your channel. Thanks for being real. I’m sorry to word vomit on your page, but it feels oddly good to let it out even if it is never seen by anyone. Wishing you the best. I will be following your journey.

Fernando Aguilar Gaytan : Hi Simone of course you don't know me and I didn't watch your videos before, I write you from Mexico and I want to say you that all will be ok you will be healthy and you will be a very old and funny lady in 2070 God bless you and keep figthing.

Otze : Found your Chanel today while i was searching for funny robot videos...and then found this impressive story. Good to see your recovery, greetings from germany! P. S. Now you should be carefuly use your wake up robot ;) Thumb up and Abo.

Alvin Fletcher : I don't think I have seen your channel before, However, ElectroBOOM recommended you and this is the first video I have seen. You seem awesome and I can't wait to see your content, your humour is AWESOME haha.

[Inactive Creators Channel] : We’re so glad you’re back and doing so well!

Sofie E. : The balloon helps the katheter to remain in your bladder. Otherwise it'd just fall out.

EDDY REALLY VD SWALUW : Amazing what you went thru,no not me would have made my life shorter nt scared of death but an open brain surgery even question why for i am sure in future precision done with machines even cancer would not even exist,but great to see you being positive and fun always speak your mind not like these fakes of my past who caused me having another burnout without me like being aware stalking me,even them taken position like really one of them well i think you would do better sitting in this chair for sure not even had any study psychiatry,well like sure spend loads of time studying all medication and so many diagnoses ended up being HSP well an old college also indeed i worked with Amsterdam Airport i am sure you have ADHD oh never allowed to move as a child,and even got told where i did get myself this diagnose cause Ritalin made me feel like a plant and with them group sessions they also well we have great doubts send me to another division where i got this HSP with the right medication,but there attempt to make me crazy again this idiot just stopped my medication,shortly followed by cluster headaches extreme,yes also helps dexamphetamines,but no still really been trying to break me,and when i found out all of them of my past been stalking me,like who would not go nuts,and all for real used other names and if i would not find out,this drummer Golden Earring actual name Hans Visser even his brother got a job here and the one who raised me well got kicked out with his son also creating this twilight zone left me thinking who can i still trust,? And you can not change a soul gender,neither being devoted becoming DJ just a hobby,like them all fighting to be number one and waving their hands in the air usb stick please. Hopefully just like you mentioned i also wish to become myself like also in image,would need to get some mega Boobs to fit my Body.yes to defend myself got a bit larger then my past,reason i am aware Kary Byron well a picture fallen of a pushbike age 7 both front teeth broken,. and looking like my Birth Mother,you must know. Her showing you of on pictures,and well yes,My main talent vision,and you are funny in a good way like also talking what ever comes thru your mind,not fake,Glad you pulled thru,Would be amazing to meet up with you,and hopefully soon get another operation done getting more fat weight want them looking natural wobbly boobs behind to fit not going for this hormone procedure first,taken of this crucifixion between my legs body hormones will react and laser treatments even showing this walk thru hell of many others really narcissist,as if i would show of me loving to wear glossy stockings looking like a cross dresser not my thought to offend one other,but just pointing out why do so many have to go thru this for sure putting heaps of unneeded stress,even with speaking my mind economics far from being social.For them fools dirty cash,would save lads of money for them health insurance company`s ,its like my legs are being pulled in every way,thinking cant be real all just focused on their each own occupation,discussions even without research first,for real and stalking me,as if i would want to return in such dull might as wale jump feeling out of place gossip environment. Just really like recovering burnout again given two weeks before last Chris what a mass holidays. So here my reason been acting crazy stopped following you,but really being honest.Love Send well my thoughts do not react to reiki or other strange ways of thinking,like even for real such like we will send you a massage not a message but a massage from a distance,and asking if i felt it, No strange way even do my first time living within a reality ,why even think like such crazy way of,if they experience such must be placebo,rather get a real hug ,get spanked by that mechanical funny device of yours.but again love thougt send would suit me nicely instead of Eddy Ellis

Beaih : Loved your part in the rewind, best

J - : My guess is people ask if your personality have changed was coming from a more technical perspective, because your meningioma must have been fairly close to the frontal lobe based on its location near your eyeball, and frontal lobes have been known to be responsible for a person's personality (for example the famous Phineas P. Gage case where the guy survived from a traumatic injury where a rod going through his skull damaging his frontal lobe, leading to personality change in his later life). I mean, still a pretty weird question to ask (although I would be lying if I say I am not a bit curious as well), but yeah. I don't think people were thinking about it from a more emotional perspective when they asked the question. Nevertheless,. Glad your surgery was successful and you are ok! You look great!

Lindsay Cunningham : Who the hell disliked this?

MsThorne2009 : Glad your surgery went well. This coming November will make 10 years since I had a Left Temporal Lobotomy done to remove the neurons where my seizures were happening. It was scary but very successful. It’s amazing what doctors can to now and days. I haven’t had a seizure since.
