Thank you for posting your query.
The prognosis of a benign tumor
of pituitary is quite good. So, if you have gone through the biopsy
report of the tumor, and it is benign, then the chances of long term survival is quite good.
There could be mild decline in her memory and cognitive functions due to her tumor and radiotherapy. However, we should investigate whether she has any other reasons for the same. This would include checking for vitamin B12 deficiency
, thyroid dysfunction
Proper treatment of her dementia
would help her recover to an extent.
