Thanks for the query. The remaining tumour mass cannot be removed as superior saggital sinus resection might lead to quadriplegia loss of power of all 4 limbs), if u r feeling healthy and u dont have any symptoms i suggest u go for regular follow ups to the neuro surgeon and leave it all to them to decide. Have a healthy living
