Hey Saucy> Yes I had a 3.5 tumor (acustic Nuroma) removed from my brain stem in 2014.They are VERY rare.1 in 100,000 people get them, go figure I did. Yea I can’t fly any more after my surgery, Air pressure messes with my head. Whatever you do. Listen to your doctors, surgeons, and PLEASE ASK Questions…Thank God my daughter is a RN nurse. I’m 61 years old, I was 59 when they found this tumor, because I had suffered from earaches for many years. Routine vist to my doctor, Bammm. Acoustic Nueroma after MRI was taken. I still have 2 percent on my brain stem nerves that go to my face, I have to get MRI eery year to make sure its not growing.
I have eye issues often, because the remains is still resting on my eye nerve…Not fun. But it could have been a lot worse
