Hi Donna:
I certainly understand how scared you are. i was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma in 2014 after going in to my doctor with an ear ache.
I also had hydrosphelis (water on my brain) that my doctor was concerned about.
I underwent a 12 hour surgery on March 10, 2014. The tumor was benign, Thank the LORD..
Since the tumor was growing in my inner ear, i lost hearing on my left side. i have imbalance issues now and each day is different and a challenge.
My eyes get very tired and I can’t do the jobs i used too.
the surgery was successful, as i am still here even tho I was left with disabilities I feel very blessed.
Don’t stress out. The neurosurgeons are excellent…ASK Many questions…Don’t go into the surgery with questions remaining…
I will say prayers for you, don’t stress out.Ask your neurosurgeons how many of these surgeries they’ve done. Specific questions will get you the best answers.
If you need some moral support just send me a note here on the web site and I will do my best to tell you what you’dl ike to know. All i can do is tell you what i went thru and how my life is now.
I do know without the surgery, the tumor will continue to grow and will kill you.

Hi Rose
I am 3 weeks post surgery. I had a retrosigmoid craniotomy for a 3.3 cm acoustic Neuroma. I went to Mayo Clinic in AZ. It was the best place to go and I was treated very well. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me.
