Sat, Mar 2 8:25pm · Anyone else diagnosed with acoustic neuroma, a benign brain tumor? in Brain Tumor

I went to Mayo for what I thought was vertigo, they did a hearing test and I was told by the doctor I had a tumor and needed a MRI. I can't have MRI's due to a metal implant in my body so they did a cat scan. I was told it was normal, however I just recently started having some light vertigo. I'm a flight attendant so even slight vertigo can have an impact but also flying can cause vertigo. So my question was was the cat scan as effective as a MRI and could they have missed ti?

I had the lactose and fructose test at Mayo before my LYNX surgery. They were both negative. After surgery I still had to take meds, still had high A1C and a host of other problems. I cut out fruit and it changed my life. My point being don’t relay on these tests they are not always correct. It’s better to cut out food groups one at a time and see how you feel. You’ll know in a few weeks. A good start is lactose. Cut out all dairy. Then if no change in how you feel in a few weeks slowly add back one item at a time. Next cut out all fruit, by the way I got my A1C down to 5.7 but couldn’t get it lower until I found out that things like cucumbers and peppers are also considered fruit! Once I cut that out my A1C went to 5.4! My doctor was shocked. Now if I eat something that I shouldn’t I have problems for 2-3 days so it’s not worth it! As far as SIBO once again don’t wait for a test treat yourself as though you have it, it won’t hurt you if you don’t but change your diet. A good probiotic, no sugar in any form including breads and pastas, drinks, protein bars. Yes i know what does that leave you to eat!! Not much, eggs proteins and some vegetables! I can tolerate cheese and whey protein, but watch the protein bars some are very high in fiber and I have a hard time digesting them. I know it’s a lot of work but when you find the hidden food you will feel sooo much better it will be worth it!

Just found out Dr Burdick retired. I’ve posted about the LINX in the past. If I eat foods that make me gassy it will put pressure on the device and it can be painful.. I found out after the surgery that I had a fructose intolerance even though Mayo tested me for it and it was negative. I still had to take 2 Zantac a day after surgery but when I cut out the fruit and sugar I haven’t taken any since. I would like to have the LINX stretched but waiting for a replacement Dr for Dr Burdick. I would suggest cutting out food groups before surgery and see if your intolerant to possibly grains, lactose, fructose, ect. They are more common then we think. Cutting out fruit, which I loved, also lowered my A1C to normal, stopped the foot cramps, lost weight, cystitis went away and burning stomach. Eating the wrong foods can cause autoimmune diseases. The “Plant Paradox” by Dr. Gundry is excellent in explaining this.

Thanks! An lot of the stories were scary! I am 65 and a flight attendant, thought I was having veritgo and hearing loss from flying but tests show possibility of tumor. Still want to work for several more years before retiring, also I’m very active so hopefully all will be ok!
