Hi

I am sad to know about your dad affected by brain tumor. Even i faced the same situation for my dad. If you are put up at Bangalore, i would request you to consult Dr. Ram Gopal Varma the nerosurgeon - M.S Ramaiah Memorial Hospitalm- Bangalore. Never & ever can see a Dr like that.

Pray god for your dad's quick recovery

Hi,This is pankaj from Delhi. Wanted to ask you whether there is any ayurvedic cure available for Brain tumor, when the tumor is in the middle of the brain. My Aunty (based in Haldwani,Uttaranchal) is suffering from it and now it is severe, she has left all her diets and now has stopped recognizing anyone.Doctors have refused to operate as they say that its 95% sure that the operation would be unsuccessful. The tumor suspected is Glioblastoma. The survival periods is between 1-6 months. The patient appears as if she is in coma and is not at all responding.We want to start with the ayurvedic medicines at the earliest. I am sending the reports for your referencePlease let me know if something can be done.Awaiting your reply at the earliestRegard pankaj

Dear doctor, Three years ago (2006) , My daughter had been diagnosed with brain tumor called (DNET) in the right temporal lobe size (33x22x19 mm) . The MRI scan was done after having a car accident as a normal check up. Doctors recommended not to expose her to an operation to remove the tumor since she was only two years old and did not complain from any health problems. Recently ,my 6 years old daughter started to complain from headache episodes nearly every day. I started to notice that her eyes directions are not parallel as usual and within two days she has crossed eyes. The doctor discovered that she has a compressed optic nerve due to increased pressure in the skull ( hydrocephalus) and ordered an urgent operation called(shunt )to drain the accumulated fluid . A tube was inserted in her skull to drain fluids in to her abdomen . Her eyes returned back to its normal direction and every thing is ok now. However, doctors recommended that the tumor should be removed within one year maximum otherwise she will suffer from serious complications. An MRI scan was done after the shunt surgery shows an increased size of the tumor ( 39 X 53 mm) .Kindly, I want your recommendations based on the attached MRI scans and the best surgery methods to follow with minimum complications. 1.     What are the most common post-operative complications ? 2.      What is your evaluation in general? 3.     How long we can wait until she get fully recovered from the hydrocephalous operation that was done one month ago in order to do the surgery required ? Please Note: In this letter I will attach the following: -     MRI scan that was done 3 years ago (2006) with the report . -     MRI scan done in 2008 with report. -     MRI scan done in 2010 after shunt surgery with report. If you could not receive the attached files please send me another e-mail so I can send them back to you. Your fast response will be appreciated. Best regards; Hope KUWAIT

I'm a 40 year old female, healthy, although I am overweight, prediabetic, and on medication for a rapid heart beat. I was diagnosed with a bad sinus infection last week and given a course of zithromax (finished it yesterday) other than a lingering sore throat and some ear pressure/pain i'm improving. Today while crocheting with my head bent forward my nose started to drain from the left nostril a clear but to my shock a bright yellow watery fluid (think a highlighter yellow) is this just ear/sinus fluid draining as I get better or should I be concerned of something more serious like csf fluid leakage (no head trama suffered) I guess what I'm asking is should I go to the er or ignore it?
