I was diagnosed with Medullablastoma in October of 2010 and I am currently going thru treatment. I am 26 years old. I have done 30 sessions of radiation and have completed 2 of the 6 rounds of chemotherapy. I have been trying to deal with severe leg pain for the past 3 months. They think it is neuropathy, but cannot say for sure. I am wondering if anybody has had this symptom and what you did to help with the pain? I would appreciate any suggestions.

I have bad leg pain that I thought was sciatica. I went to an osteopath who said the pain comes from severly tightened tendons and muscles. I'm doing the exercises, but there'll always be tenderness.

This may not be the answer you're looking for... My tumour is very different from yours. Chat with your neurologist and see if you can get referred to either a pain specialist or see if an osteopath would help.
