I have a somewhat unusuall condition..initially thought it was an AN which is how I wound up on this board...I had transphenoidal endoscopic approach at Fl Hospital in Orlando with Dr Melvin Fields at Orlando Neurosurgery...he worked previously with Dr Jho..speaking of which,,I never heard back from him.....I live iin FL and traveling to CA and insurance etc it was much easier to deal with the east coast here etc. I was quite impressed with Dr. Fields and the hospital etc. My insurance has covered everthing and although I have still had to follow up with CK...a whole different experience,,I would highly recommmend Dr Fields..you can find his website at orlando neurosurgery .com...
I was in hospital two days,,due to an occulusion test the day before and then surgery..then home...not bad overall and recovery was around 4 weeks....great compared to other approaches no matter whom you go with..try endoscopic..much less invasive.
In the interim..you may also be a candidate for radiosurgery..there are several types..fractionated, non fractionated etc so be sure and review those post on this board also and you may be able avoid actual surgery all the way around......
Good luck and if you have any questions please feel free to email..
by the way Eve,,nice to see you post
