I recently got diagnosed with a large acoustic neuroma of 2x2.7 cm.
I spoke to my consultant yesterday via the phone and she said surgery is the next step. The only problem is because of the Coronavirus it won’t be till we’ll over 6 months. I’m on the waiting list but it’s all very scary.
I am 33 with three young children 5 and under. I’m glad it’s not the C word and feel very fortunate but I worry about my face.
For the people that have had surgery on here, did you get facial paralysis? If so what is the next steps after that?
I have lost hearing in my left ear I have tinnitus and my balance is beginning to be effected.
Any advise would be brilliant.
Also I spoke to the neurologist consultant and she said we don’t classify at high risk but I’m staying in anyway.
