Just finished five fractionated stereotactic treatments on Nov. 17. No side effects except for a headachy type pain in the area of my head where the tumor is and some temporary voice hoarseness. The headaches were alleviated by Advils and the hoarseness cleared up. A day or so after my last treatment, hearing in my bad (right) ear seemed to improve somewhat. My word recognition is still bad but I seem to have better tonal quality. It's only a slight improvement but definitely noticeable. Has anyone else had their hearing improve after treatment? I know it may only be temporary and that I may lose hearing again as the tumor dies.
