Highly variable: It all depends on where the tumor is, how big it is, what kind of tumor it is. With benign tumors such as meningiomas, you can expect little post-op problems or therapy; for malignant gliomas or metastatic tumors you may require brain radiation or chemotherapy or both after surgery. Talk to your doctors who know your case best.
