A second operation on a 7-year-old boy with cancer has gone well, a high court was told today. The operation to remove a small growth from Neon Robert's brain was ordered by the court on Tuesday against his mothers wishes.
Sally Roberts, from Tiverton said the operation was unnecessary and disputed doctors' diagnoses. She is back at the high court today to argue against follow up treatment using radiotherapy or chemotherapy, because they have harmful side effects.
She wants the right to call in overseas medical experts, and the court hearing was adjourned so that she could talk to a new barrister acting on her behalf.
