Thank you for posting your query.

Wysolone is a steroid group of drugs, and it is used to reduce swelling in the brain. It is not clear for which tumor this treatment is being given. Tumor in the brain needs a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

Wysolone is known to cause weight gain and swelling. However, once it is stopped, these changes would revert back to normal. In addition, blood sugar and BP may increase while on treatment with steroids, so, please keep checking BP and sugars on a regular basis.

Best wishes,
