I had my AN removed by Drs. Barker and Lee on April 20, 2011. They got the entire tumor out and my complications were minimal. Unfortunately, one of the outcomes was that I did lose my hearing. I believe Dr. Lee did most of the tumor removal, and he had told me going in that there was only a 50-50 chance it could be saved, so I was prepared. The couple days in the hospital were tough, but my recovery was not bad compared to many descriptions I've seen from others here on the forum. I had some facial paralysis a couple days post op, and Dr. Lee was very prompt about returning my phone calls (one on a Saturday evening). He even made time to see me between surgeries when I was at MEEI to see Dr. Hadlock in the Facial Nerve Center. I highly recommend Dr. Lee as one of your surgeons.
