Hi featheri449 and Janey .....
Welcome to this discussion forum, where there is a wealth of information. Just remember that none of us are doctors, but we share our experiences with others. Many, many acoustic neuroma patients never reach out for support and go back to their normal routines following treatment. And then there are a number of us, who have stayed on this forum to support and reassure those patients who are looking for information, answers, support, etc.
If you have not already done so, be sure to check out the home page for the Acoustic Neuroma Association https://www.anausa.org/
for accurate information on treatment options, treatment locations, etc.
Gather all of your questions and feel free to ask them ..... that's why we are here.
PS: see my answer to Janey's post on Dr. Cassis. I do not know anything about the doctors at Hopkins you mentioned.
