15 years post surgery
« on: February 18, 2014, 09:33:36 pm »
Was diagnosed 15 years ago this week. Surgery May 12, 1999. Left side acoustic neuroma removed via retro sigmoid approach @ Mayo Clinic Rochester, MN. Made some really great long term friends on thru ANA. This was the therapy, and frankly the only therapy back then. Love the new format of this. Seems like a very long time ago...seems like yesterday.

Welcome back, Patricia!

4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
