      Hugs and healing vibes. There are lots of medications out there to help with behavioral changes. Speak with you oncology team about what you can expect had what they recommend to help mitigate the issues.

      Best of luck with your surgery, please keep us posted on your progress.

      Don't worry, they will have you on a steroid that will help slow the disease down, and actually there is really no way to know at this stage whether you will have any deficits either physically or psychological. Most patients do well and the brain will compensate for some issues. Best of luck, and I know that you are young and that is always a benefit, Carm RN.

      This is not the same for everyone. What I experienced after surgery and treatment was that I was more anxious and would become easily upset over the smallest things. I have been given Zoloft and it works great. If you feel anything out of the norm please let your dr know, only you will know if you don't feel right.
