Hi Wendy, I was diagnosed with a 1.7 cm acoustic neuroma and a .8 meningioma on Oct. 20th. After going to Mich. Ear Inst. and learning about the surgical approach I reached out for prayers and help with other options. I learned from a friend she had the gamma knife done on her 1.8 cm in Dec 2004 and has had excellent results. I had the gamma knife procedure on Nov. 23rd. and haven’t noticed any substantial changes yet. I am 59 and felt the gamma knife was my best option. I have 45% hearing loss and didn’t want the invasive surgery because I would have had 100% loss with it. My balance has been affected, but I didn’t realize that was my problem. I thought it was due to severe allergies. I wish you well and will keep in touch with all of you. Ann

I go to the Mich Ear Inst too ! cool best place ever for an acoustic neuroma !!!

Hi Ann. I too have an acoustic neuroma about 3/4″ in size. Found out on Dec 13, 2012. Just starting out on my new journey. How are you doing now and has your balance improved? Any advice you can give me. This whole thing scares me and am looking for advice from others that have been there. Thanks, Deborah
