Total shutdown after being pulled from steroids

Hi, my loved one was diagnosed with glioblastoma, they had surgery, went through the 6 weeks of radiation/chemo combo, and is now taking infusion once a month and chemo 5 days a month every month for six months (she is on month 2 now). This entire time she has been on steroids and recently we pulled her off, but she basically shut down, had no verbal response, sleeping constantly, and had incontinence. This sent her to the ER and the doctors don't know what caused this. She has now been put on high-dose steroids and she is low functioning again. Has this happened to anyone / does anyone have a similar experience and could shed some light on the situation? Thank you!
