Back from Mayo and my results were good. My MRI showed no growth whatsoever. So I remain wait and watch and return in a year for another MRI. In my favor for minimal or no growth in the future is my age, 69, and the size of my AN, roughly 5mm X 7mm.
My hearing loss and tinitus have not worsened. I do expect to lose more hearing as time goes on. So be it. I'm finding that the tinitus is bothering me less and less. I think I just ignore it much of the time. Maybe getting my hearing aid has also helped with more sound coming in to mask the tinitus.
As long as things stay as they are, I'm perfectly OK living with this tumor in my head without treating or removing it. That's quite a shift from the fear that gripped me in the first few weeks after my diagnosis. Information and support made all the difference. Thanks ANA!
