in a case of post surgery for frontal lobe glioma, for how long should the patient given valproic acid ?

33 yr old patient with frontal lobe glioma grade 2,received radiotherapy is on sodium valproic acid, for how long the patient should be on drug and how to withdraw the drug, in case of seizure free post op period for 2 and half years?

This medication is used to treat seizure disorders. It works by restoring the balance of certain natural substances (neurotransmitters) in the brain.

If this medication is used for seizures, do not stop taking it without consulting your doctor. Your condition may become worse if the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased.  (+ info)

My father has a terminal glioma (brain tumor) of the corpus callosum. What can I expect during his last days?

It is very difficult, when you don't know what to expect. New symptoms are showing up every day. It is always traumatic when they develop. If I knew what was coming, it wouldn't be so difficult.

If you knew someone who went through this, and you can talk about it, your help would be greatly appreciated.

few days before my mother had a surgery of brain the doctor detedt that the tumor was GLIOMA is it curable?

the radiation is going on. pls reply if it is possible.

Gliomas can be cancerous or benign. Both needing radiation to try to keep it from coming back. Unless he did a biopsy, he had no way of knowing what cells were involved in the tumor growth. Is she going to have chemo also or just the radiation?

Sorry I know what I'm talking about. I just had a brain tumor resection less than 4 months ago. Dr had no way of knowing if it was benign or cancerous, what cells were involved and what grade the tumor was. After my surgery, tumor was sent off to be tested. Gliomas almost ALWAYS come back at a higher grade.  (+ info)

Answer your own question.

It doesn't matter. A brain tumor that is a Glioblastoma or a Brain Stem Glioma is bad. Doesn't matter if you are a child or an adult.

My friend died from brain stem glioma last year and she was only 12.?

i dont want to see any phycologists because that would make me uncomfortble. What do i do?

My friend part of your answer is asking questions. You are well on your way to healing/accepting the loss of your friend. I lost my father within minutes of He and I having arguments over my responsibilities. We were both yelling and he died within a few minutes of having a massive heart attack. I think about him often and wish I could take back everything I said that day. Talk with your friends and your parents and let them know how much this has affected you. Let them know you are worried and want help in learning how to cope with this. I can't imagine how much pain you are going through but I wish you the best and hope it all works out for you.  (+ info)

What are odds of beating a brain tumor that is a glioma?

The type of glioma and the staging are what would give you enough info to be able to make an accurate guess. I had a friend die of an aggressive type so I thought that they were always terminal. Since then I have met a man who was diagnosed with a glioma. After his surgery during which they removed about 98% of the tumor the pathology report came back and determined that his glioma was an indolent or slow growing type. This happened about 2 yrs ago and his scans since then have shown no significant new tumor growth. He is back at work so he must feel pretty good. So until they do a biopsy and get the pathology report back you do not know what you are dealing with unless scans show a rapidily growing neoplasm in which case the prognosis would obviously be guarded.


good luck  (+ info)
