Apparently 1:100 patients having this surgery are found to have Facial Nerve Neuromas. Sometimes it is not clear at MRI scan if the tumour derives from the Acoustic Nerve or the Facial Nerve as both may be involved. To preserve my face, the wonderful surgeon left some of the tumour, which seems to be behaving. It would be great to hear from anyone who may have longer experience of this.
