When I went to Mayo Clinic I was offered the Radiation Surgery. It is supposed to stop the acoustic neuroma from growing any bigger. It works well for some people but not at at all for others. Because of this I decided against it. I wanted this thing completely out of my body. I chose durgery. My acoustic neuroma tumor was still small enough to remove easily. I didn’t want further issues than I already have been experiencing. Hypothyroidism neuropathy dead in the left ear 45% hearing in the right ear. I didn’t want paralysis of my face or worse death. So radiation was a no for me. Ad long as they could taint all out I wanted surgery. This is something you need to choose for you. If your doctor doesn’t perform surgery well and you prefer that then go get another opinion. I did and the out come has been fantastic!!
Liz in Illinois I’m pro surgery. By the way I’m 61 years old and have a heart condition but Mayo Clinic took great care of me
