Ive not really been on this community before.
Mainly on the adhd forum.
ummm any way as the title says.
Acoustic neuromas is what I was diagnosed with this afternoon.
I had an mri scan on my brain about 4 weeks ago and then middle of last week I get a phone call for another mri scan but with a dye in my head this time.
Then I get another bloody call asking me to go in today.
I met the same audiologist as last time.
I will say the specialist I saw was of the very few specialist that’s actually listened to my cause and that I actually got on with.
So any way I was with my wife when he called me in.
His words were “I guess you know why your hear”nope I said.
Well “good news we’ve actually found something,this is what you have,a 5mm x 4.8mm none cancerous piece of some lump on the edge of your inner ear”
Few I thought,so I wasn’t imagining hearing noises etc.
So I’ve next month to go to see some one else and then have another scan.
Then a scan every 6 months just to keep an eye on the size.
And also possible ideas of removing it as this is what’s causing the tinnitus and slight hearing loss as pressing on a nerve.
As any body would with having adult ADHD,I was more concerned about how my wife was taking it.
I mean life’s not exactly been easy what with two cancer scares and being diagnosed with somet new every year.
Not sunk in yet but I’m sure will be ok
Thanks for listening just needed to chat about what was in my mind ha ha
