    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): The craniotomy went well - but her energy level dropped dramatically immediately afterward. She also has confusion and forgetfulness, however, we are unsure if that is side effects from the surgery or the tumor itself.

      Is she undergoing any treatment yet? From my experience, I would say the surgery is the contributing factor to the energy level...The body is dealing with a lot right now, mentally & physically. Where the tumor was plays in to the picture as well. mine was on the right front parietal lobe, near the cortex. Surgeon couldn't get it all, but he got most of it. By the end of the day, my brain is worn out from trying to remember things. After almost 6 years, I have learned to make/keep lists. Make the list of what I want to get done the next day, and keep a list of the things I want to tell my hubby when he gets home, i.e. something I heard on the news, or something I read, or an accomplishment. Just some pointers, but above all...encouragement and patience.

      if you notice it worsening, perhaps discuss it with her Doctor. When in doubt, ask questions! (Another list)
