I agree totally. My tumor is in cerebello pontine angle along foramen jugulare with partial growth in sinus sigmoideus. Not possible to get it all out without loosing quality of life. My Drs gave me an option to have it embolized to shrink and stop growth & stabilize . That was 5 years ago it worked shrunk 20% and stabile last 5 years no new growth dr thinks it died due no blood. Praying he is right. I also so grateful not to have had cranial surgery. My quality of life is fairly good, deaf in right ear and earlier balance issues which got better with time but I have learned to live with this and my yearly mri. Every good mri is a blessing and another good year to enjoy my life.
