      You had brain surgery. The area was exposed to radiation and you swallowed some sort of poison.

      You ought to keep looking into maximizing your magnesium delivery along with other needed vitamins and minerals and healing herbs. Look into every way which you believe may help.

      Patience might be in order. You've been extremely traumatized. Give yourself time to heal.

      Doesn't UM have a cancer center in the complex?

      Blessings.

      I would recommed you to talk with your oncology team for them to evaluate how severe it is and for hoiw long you should keep being patient on this issued....also I would suggest you to ask them if you could practice yoga, there are several levels, including yoga specific for cancer patients........althought I have colon cancer, I also had balance problems (probably not so severe as yours) and practicing yoga helped me a lot.......Good luck and God bless you and give you the strength to overcome it

      Thanks for the replies! I guess it wiil justr take time and me relearning. I will try more PY that I had to practice and the vitamin/agnisium things. The PT and moving around seem hard, since I seem sick whenever I'm moving, but I need to try it. I'll look more into the yogu, never thought about that?

      Try silica instead of calcium. Available in food, raspberry leaf or oatstraw or horsetail tea, and as an under the tongue pellet from a homeopic shop. Calcium builds rigid mass while silica makes flexible bone structures. How did you decide you need calcium?
