Watch and Wait has advantages, like you get to keep your hearing, if your facial nerve is ok now you don't jump into risking it being damaged with surgery, and you get to put off a very unpleasant surgery. Yes, surgery will take the tumor away but recovery is not easy, I lost my taste buds, lost the hearing in my right ear. Had my tumor been smaller and I knew then what I know now I might have opted for radiation. At any rate there is a lot to think about and McKenna will listen and make the referrals for you, talk to the surgeons, talk to the radiation oncologists, do your own research as well. It is a journey and you suck up knowledge all along the way, knowledge is power. Best of luck.
