Doctors run tests as Yateley toddler struggles to recover from brain surgery

Published at 6:27am 22nd March 2017.

Little Freddie Hunt of Yateley is still in hospital - as doctors in the US run tests to find out why he is struggling to recover from surgery.

The two year old was discharged last month two weeks after an operation to remove most of a brain tumour in Arizona.

Mum Abby now says the are trying to find out why he has been so ill.

She says he is suffering from diarrhoea, and is very swollen from fluid retention.

On the Together For Freddie Facebook group, Abby says it could be an endocrine problem.

Freddie was readmitted to hospital yesterday just days before he was due to return home.

Last week it emerged that after an initial operation to remove most of the tumour, Freddie was not currently well enough to continue his treatment.

He is due to return to the UK by the end of March so he can recuperate, with the plan that he will return to America for proton therapy.

However, the timeline has been thrown into doubt.

Abby says they are hoping to get the test results soon.

The toddler has also has suffered some paralysis and has lost the sight in one eye - it is not clear if either of these effects are permanent.

Eagle Radio listeners helped get Freddie to America for treatment as part of Freddie's Friday.

But the family's troubles continue, with more money needed to complete his treatment.
