Hello Lisa,

Thanks for your note and to answer your question on treatment.The onset of her problems since 1992 have been very very gradual and other than watchful monitoring Ann has not had any medication or particular treatments.We now see her neurologist annually and if deemed necessary scans will be undertaken.These currently show there has been marginal growth with the tumour. This is probably due to calcification as a result of the original radio therapy.We have also from time to time seen the neuro psychologists as part of her monitoring regime in terms of her cognition and general wellbeing.

I hope your not having too many problems with you condition and for our part we have been lucky with coping with a relatively low grade brain tumour rare in adults but sited in a part of the brain that effects motor and cognition.I'm pleased that you appreciate my posts,they are done just to share our experiences and hopefully be of encouragement.

With every good wish.N.

Thank you for continuing to post, Norman. Could I ask how your wife's brain tumor was diagnosed? Was it by a traditional MRI of the brain or something else to see the basal ganglia?
