- Question: Is left-sided weakness after Gamma Knife surgery for right frontal meningioma (2cm x1.5cm x2cm.) usually temporary or can this be permanent? No vessel or nerve involvement.
Usually it is temporary, but steroid dose or taper, actual dose and time over which it is given can also cause these side effects as can blood vessel injury. Talk to your radiation oncologist about this, soon.
