Has anyone had stereotactic radiosurgery for brain metastases and if so did they lose some mobility on one side of Thier body. Really struggling to get around three weeks after having it done and concerned as to whether this is temporary or a side effect. Had to get commode as going upstairs all the time is difficult. Even getting out of chair or bed is tiring and time consuming.  Any information would be much appreciated 

  • Hi  

    I'm sorry to read that you've lost some mobility since having surgery three weeks ago. I presume that your hospital team are aware of this.

    I haven't had this procedure, so don't have any experience to share with you, but I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list where it'll be easier to see.

    You might also want to join and post in the secondary brain cancer group and, if this is something that you'd like to do, clicking on the link will take your straight there. 

    While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment so far into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'.

  • Yes I had SRS over two years ago but had no issues afterwards and 3 monthly MRIs have been positive. Unfortunately though I've now got some bone mets including one in a femur which has been operated on by inserting a rod and that has affected my mobility, largely I suspect due to a combination of the op and the steroids I'm trying desperately to wean off.  Reaction to SRS I suspect depends on many factors like location of the mets etc .
