After having a large managioma brain tumor removed, (very large), I have no pain (thankful) but have right side partial paralysis (right leg and right forearm and hand). I am 70 years and go to the YMCA 5 days a week. But my leg and hand will not get better. My speach came back but any ideas would be helpful. I do fall once in a while for no reason at all. I take carbamezepine for seizure control - could that make be not as stable? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You are a real survivor and whatever the nature gives you back, should be fully appreciated by you. Surviving a surgery for the tumor removal, followed by few neurological deficits is a real wonder.
I would suggest you to continue your physiotherapy as well as good lifestyle. Nothing else is required.
