My aunt has had a brain tumor for the past six years. She got operated on for it four years back and for a second time a year back. Even after operating, the doctor says it is recurring. The tumor has metastasized, and no further treatment can help her. She is unable to move on her own and gets terrible headaches. Even after taking medicines, the pain is intolerable. What can be done for the headaches?
I read your query and can understand your concern. However, the treatment will depend on the primary tumor for metastatic lesions. Can you please provide the following details so I can understand and help you better?
1) What is the source of the tumor?
2) Was a biopsy performed?
3) What was the biopsy result?
4) Did she undergo chemotherapy or radiation?
I would suggest that whole-brain radiation can be performed to decrease tumor size. However, there are setbacks to such aggressive therapy.
I hope this will be helpful and revert with the requested details.

Same symptoms doesn’t mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
.. (Nepafenac) does not have such side effects. But, I suggest you reduce the frequency of Nevanac to twice daily after 15 days and then to once at bedtime after next 15 days.
