My mom had stereotactic surgery to treat a lesion on her temporal lobe and this was followed up with 15 treatments of WBR (I don't know the dosage) prophylacticly. She has been experiencing severe weakness (no longer able to walk), fatigue, loss of appetite, confusion, difficulty with abstract thought, mood swings, and pain ever since. This is now almost 10 weeks out. Is the information in this comment still current? We were told that there was very little chance of any negative side effects from the WBR and most of those were associated with individuals who had undiagnosed Alzheimers.
