I went to the opthalmologist with stuff that looked like floaters and seeing things out of the corner of my eye, and the doc said it's all neurological. I now think it's probably eye movement problems similar to nystagmus, related to the vestibular system. After all, the tumor is choking the "heck" out of that nerve.
The cranial nerve that affects swallowing can be affected by the AN and/or treatment. Don't know how common this is, but I sure know I've had more swallowing problems since CK.
It seems many docs know less about these kind of symptoms. Which is why (in retrospect) you should have your treatment done by someone with lots and lots of experience treating AN patients. I had CK done by docs who had lots of experience with brain tumors of all sorts and CK, but little experience with ANs. I think they did a fine job zapping the sucker, but have really muddled around trying to help me with the after-effects.
Funnydream, I've had just about every thought you mentioned in your post, and just about every symptom. Was wondering last night if the low level stress of this whole experience will just gradually wear me down.
My goal over the next few days is to pray lots, and try to get a new game plan for my life. In the short run, if the symptoms continue (especially balance/wonky head), just things I can tweak to make it easier on myself. In the long run, if the symptoms continue, how I'm going to deal with this. I think staying positive, keeping life simple, remembering the spiritual, and taking good care of one's health is a good plan.
