    I am trying to find answers for my son who had a brain tumor at 15. He is now 30 and having side effects from the radiation. He had immediately lost the hormone that controls thirst and urine(he takes DDAVP for that), and he can't use both eyes at the same time. Now, 15 years later, he has lost some of his hearing and feeling on the side of his head where the radiation was given. He is constantly fatigued, and I want to know what else to look for.

    You may find the guidelines for follow-up care helpful in answering your questions. These were developed by the Children's Oncology group. Here is the URL. http://www.childrensoncologygroup.org/disc/LE/default.htm
    Hope this helps.
