I first noticed an issue May 2018, just thought my ears needed a clear out of wax, I got referred to ENT after a hearing test and further visits to the doctors, in 6 months, after an MRI scan was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma.
In that time my hearing on the left side diminished pretty quickly to just faint noise, I could no longer make out sounds.
I had my second scan in July, the consultant advised that the tumour was growing faster than expected, my next scan is coming up shortly, and a meeting with my consultant early Jan. I will then be at the point of having to make the decision to undergo surgery or radio surgery so i'm reading as much as i can about the pros and cons of each.
Its been very helpful reading some of the posts on here, any advice would be welcome.
