Daer Sir, My name is Tintu Milton. My father-in-law is suffering from Brain Tumor - Meningioma. He is 65 years old. He do not have any headache. One day at midnight we saw him lying down we thought he fainted. we consulted a doctor. He told it mignt be due to gas problem or food infection. He was in ICCU. But it was not fainted he had a fix at that time. He was having the problem of re calling. if we ask what he had in the morning. He will not be able to.We took him to the Neurologist. Took the MRI. THen we found that it is too big. Left side of the brain is thickened and it has slightly started growing to right side of the brain.It is not inside the brain. We consulted a Neuro Surgeon. He told it is a very risky surgery. Anything can happen after the surgery. So we are scared and we thought of not doing the surgery. He is taking the medicine for fix. Sometimes he cannot control the urine passage. Now he started to take the homeopathic medicine since one month. After starting the medicine he had the fix once. Please let me know how long he should take the medicine and how effective it would be?
hi dear. meningioma if operable, we should do surgery. surgical excision with postoperative radiotherapy will give best chance of survival. of course surgery is risky, but any treatment is risky. if homeopathic medicines do't work it will be more risky. still more risky to operate after a month. i do't know how brain tumor responds to homeopathy medicines, but d't think they will work because usually this tumor is relatively chemo-resistant. as he has started having symptoms, you should go for aggressive treatment. so choose one - surgery now, or surgery never. if u choose later, radiotherapy is an alternative.
Dear I am sorry for the symptoms your father in law is suffering First of all t'iu should understand that Meningeoma is benign tumor and it goes big for a long long time. Unfortunately tumors aren't treated with medication. Surgery, especially on meningeomas are the definite treatment. If you can provide me the image of CT scan I can tell the risk of surgery. Meantime oral medication should be taken all life long but unfortunately after some time it will be no more effective. Regards
