My wife suffers from a grade II astrocytoma in the left temporal lobe. The tumor was resected in 2010 and returned in 2012. Radiation therapy was completed in February 2013 and the tumor appears to be stable but is still quite large. I recently viewed a video from TedMed which featured Yoav Medan explaining a process he developed to treat tumors with ultrasound therapy thereby avoiding surgery. He had patient examples that were receptive to the therapy and I'm asking if anyone has further information on this and any doctors who may be performing this.
The doctors advised me that the average life expectancy after radiation therapy is 2-5 years and she recently had a seizure after being seizure free for 8 months. I'm getting desparate and could use so help and advice. I attached a link to the TedMed video here.
