I just was DX with an and have 2 diff. opinions watcha nd wait -or get cyberknife soon b/c the size is 4X3mm with hearing loss, some numbness and some imbalance.... I need to know about the folowing MD's and if what their success rate is. I was told cyberknife is rx for this -no side efects however I read you can come out deaf /with headaches, or swelling.. I have migraines and headaches already for yrs now - also the MRI said I could have MS but I and the 2 MD'a doubt this. I am going to the following MD's and would like to know theirsucces rate or if I ned to go far away to get this done as I live out in the country and cannot drive alone w/ snow and ice so I am going to send the MRi with hte info and pray they get back to me. I am supposed to see the Dr Shumway St Francis Hospital, Hartford. oncologist/radiologist next week...after Dr. Chozick met w/ me and rx the Cyberknife at St Francis where they have only doe 20 of an there?
What should I do?
Do you recommend the following and do you know their success rates? Is this public knowledge?
B/c the side effects are grand I need to know.... Thank you in advance....
