Hi y'all. I'm glad to find this site. I don't have the full details of the diagnosis, I get those tomorrow. However, I noticed a significant hearing loss in my left ear last spring and asked my PCP about it, he thought it was probably just age. It kept getting worse until it was nearly complete so I contacted and ENT and set up an appointment. The testing concerned him and so he scheduled an MRI and told me what he was looking for. The MRI was early morning NYE and the doc working the lab confirmed it was an acoustic neuroma and that he had already contacted my ENT and they would be in touch for an appointment.
So, I have spent part of the weekend reading and searching for information, which eventually led me here.
From what I can tell on this site, treatment is by and large successful, though not necessarily trouble free. Does anyone have any experience with UVa Hospital for treatment? They apparently have significant experience in this field.
Thanks for any info and advice,
