It will be a month from now but Dr. Slattery at the House Clinic will remove my intracochlear schwannoma then, along with the surrounding stuff for thoroughness. He said I won't need the attendance of a neurosurgeon because the bone seperating brain and cochlea will be kept in place, and the prognosis seems good.
I'm scared I admit because I haven't had surgery of any kind since I was a small child (and it was a bad experience; I woke up partway through having my tonsils removed decades ago). I'm glad it's happening and that my coverage was enough.
I just wanted to express that. Advice, tips, well-wishing, and other things are welcome.
