I am new to this network as my miseries are new. April 22nd my wife (49 otherwise healthy) had a seizure and then it has been one roller-coaster ride and we are yet to come to the ascent. Initial diagnosis was cerebral hemorrhage then stroke, benign tumor and finally biopsy confirmed it as AAC-grade III one in left frontal and another possibly in thalamus. Surgery was ruled out and radiation started. It has been 4 weeks and week 3 she developed headache and nausea/vomiting. Was told that its due to brain swelling and she is now on Decadraon 8mg and seems to be stable. The plan was to complete 6 wk radiation and wait 4 weeks to allow the radiation to complete the job and consider Tem... chemo. She seems to have some difficulty in her short term memory and motor movt right leg after the swelling. Drs opine that with the steroid kicking in and the swelling going down she will feel better. What should we expect? Please advise.
