Thanks for the query.

Regarding the double vision and burning sensation in the feet after brain tumor surgery, there are multiple possibilities ranging from minor reasons to a major one. So I would like to know few more details from you regarding the type of tumor, its location, exposure to radiation or chemotherapy and the current scan reports. I will be in a better position to provide you the necessary details. Hence please send me the further details.

Awaiting your response.

As per your query the Location of brain tumor operation was back side of head or brain. Dr Anivekar has suggested me to change the Eptoin tab , i change the tablet Neurobin Forte. Currently i am taking this tablet , my question is how many tablets i have to take in a day & timeings ( monring or evering ).

Thanks for providing me the details.

Eptoin can sometimes cause peripheral neuropathy in the form of burning feet and paresthesias. It can also cause double vision as a common side effect. I thing Dr Anivekar is right in changing the Eptoin and starting you on a different medication.

You need to take two tablets of Neurobion forte (multivitamins) a day till the symptoms subside and then make it once a day.

Hope, this answers your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have follow up queries.

Wish you good health.
