arachnoid cyst

hi

my mom has an arachnoid cyst in her left side of her head 

she has a very bad headache, her memory sometime get bad and she feel pain in her legs too. the doctor said its not big so no need for surgery and put her on meds for a while. the meds help her a little but lately she said she feels bad and the drug has no effect to her, the doctor said there is nothing he can do. what we do now? is there anything will help her? it so hard watching her suffer with this. 

also do the surgery safe?
