Low Grade glioma in left medial temporal lobe

Hi.  Just looking for some feedback and to see if anyone has any idea what we are up against.  My wife is 32.  She had a siezure and was told she has a low grade glioma in her left medial temporal lobe.  We've been to two places and since they can control her siezures with keppra, they are suggesting a watch and wait approach.  So, we don't have differential diagnosis but tumor board at a large hospital agrees that it's a low grade glioma.  She's on serial MRI's every 4-6 months looking for a change.  after a year and a half there has been very little change.  Is there any signs or symptoms that the tumor is progressing?  Is the LMT lobe an operable area?  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.  thanks so much!

 I would emphasize her drinkingn alkaline water ONLY. My sister n law had stage 4 glioblastoma and had quit all radiation and chemo, and went strictly to naturalpathic resources.  She is now in remission. God is the God of second chances.

I don't know if that area is operable or not but I would think if you went to two different places for opinions they would have mentioned that to you while you were there?  

Other than that, I would say if both places told you to continue to monitor with MRI's for the time being then that sounds logical to me.  Generally speaking, I think treatment is generally saved for active or 'progressing' tumors and they would take action as soon as MRI's indicate this is occurring again.

Be vigilant with the follow up MRI's though.  I would do them as often as your insurance will cover.
