Trying to help brain tumor patient

Posted By Margarose on October 07, 1998 at 19:39:18:

Mother 73, has 7 weeks ago been diagnosed with
a secondary brain tumor in the eloquent area of
the brain. What concerns me is that after 5
episodes of radium treatment 4 weeks ago, she is
lethargic to the extent that she just sits or sleeps
all day. S he has no inclination to leave the
house, can't do her crochet or her crosswords
and isn't interested in t.v. Is this a normal
reaction to the situation? Usually she is a vibrant
talkative person.
Sorry I didn't manage to post a
much better explanation last night.
