Losing hearing because of brain tumor

Posted by bigmqama @bigmqama, Apr 9 2:51pm

I had a brain tumer when I was a child. I am now 57. Because of the tumer I have nerve damage and over the years have been slowly losing my hearing. Does anyone know how I can be ready for someday being deaf? I don’t know sign language and am not able to get a cochlear implant. What do I do if one day I wake up deaf?

I was scheduled for radiation from an AN but canceled because of the virus. Does radiation cause hearing loss? I had sudden hearing loss a few years ago and went to the ER but it came back. My an was small and grew in a year and at my age radiation is my only option but no one said anything about side effects other then all it would do is try to stop the growth but not give my hearing back or help with vertigo.anyone had radiation?
