Is there anything to make my dizziness or unbalanced feeling go away while I’m waiting to be treated for my AN ?

Great question @donna3. I moved your message to the discussion that was underway to bring @cynaburst @jjanes3 @rosesareredmylove2016 @tracylynnedaley72 into the conversation.

I am not sure…It is possible they can give you some medication for dizziness, but I had to go through physical therapy and vestibular rehab after my surgery to remove the tumor. The tumor is located on the balance nerve, so it unfortunately does affect balance. After awhile it is possible for the other vestibular nerve to learn how to compensate, so you do learn how to cope, but unfortunately you are never quite the same as you were before.

I went to Vestibular therapy for 8 weeks and it improved The opposite side of the brain will compensate somewhat .. you still will have dizzy moments though and if the tumor grows the balance is affected and you will notice this I could tell by my golf game …
