Hi Donna:<br />
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. <br />
I also had hydrosphelis (water on my brain) that my doctor was concerned about. <br />
I underwent a 12 hour surgery on March 10, 2014. The tumor was benign, Thank the LORD..<br />
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.<br />
My eyes get very tired and I can’t do the jobs i used too.<br />
the surgery was successful, as i am still here even tho I was left with disabilities I feel very blessed.<br />
Don’t stress out. The neurosurgeons are excellent…ASK Many questions…Don’t go into the surgery with questions remaining…<br />
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.<br />
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.<br />
I do know without the surgery, the tumor will continue to grow and will kill you.<br />

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.
