Hello,

Unfortunately, there is not too much to be done in her clinical situation. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy can be tried but they do not make miracles. For this reason, I recommend consulting with a neuro-oncologist and taking care of her. She needs you more than ever, as she may have only some months left.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Aida Quka
