I remember...I went through the same thing last year. I sent my scans and Dr. Friedman phoned me when he was on Thanksgiving vacation...LOL it was nice. You will hear from them. They are very quick to get back to  you but you must incorporate holiday & weekend etc.

I'm incredibly grateful that they offer to help and I just hope the MRI report arrived in the mail safely.

Trying to guess what they will say is gnawing away at me. It's a bad habit. But I'll report the moment I know anything from them and update here.

I hope you carry your questions with you at all times.  When I received my phone call, I didn't have my questions with me and couldn't remember to ask everything I wanted to know.

Just know that EVERYONE has several of these anxiety producing moments during this whole ordeal.  You are waiting on that phone call, then you might get a few more opinions. THEN you will have to decide, if you have different options of approach, of which approach and which doctor.  Then comes the procedure and all that implies...it goes on and on.  I only bring this up because in truth having an AN is NOT fun and not to be taken lightly.  Having a good attitude, arm yourself with information and of course seek support from your loved ones or even on this forum will only help you in the long run.  It's ok to vent here, we've all done it. There's no such thing as a stupid question.  Good luck and hope you hear from them soon!

My news is half-news: I get the consultation on Wednesday. No information yet. Reading my own MRI summary, the report couldn't even decide if it was a schwannoma or not. Hopefully the House people can make that determination.

The first step in a journey should involve knowing which direction one has to go.

Talked to Dr. Friedman @House Monday. He pretty much agreed with the track I'm on right now... also offered to look at my repeat MRI scheduled for April...great service they offer...

Praying for you guys.  Hang in there, everyman. Glad you sent your info to House; they contacted me within the week too, and the doctor I spoke  at that time with suggested the procedure I eventually had in NYC  five months later.
