Hi,

Thanks for writing in.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has shown good results in treatment of radiation therapy induced brain necrosis and edema. Other option is steroids.
You can discuss this with your treating neurologist to see th feasibility of thee two therapies in your case.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

thanks for answering.
I have 2 questions:

1.- Is the hyperbaric oxygen therapy an invasive therapy?
2.- When talking of steroids? Do you mean pills?

Thank you for your help Dr.
Best regards
