I believe I joined this group a number of years ago when I was newly diagnosed, but since I was asymptotic and my MRIs showed little growth,I was on WW and I pretended the AN wasn’t there. Well I woke up one morning last month with major hearing loss on the AN side which prompted me to visit my neurologist. AN is about 1.2cm at this point and being that I’m young (34), she recommended that I start weighing my options. Obviously the idea of surgery scares the heck out of me, but the idea of radiation probably scares me more, being that I’m still young. To make matters complicated, I have 5 young kids at home, including twin babies that I’m still breastfeeding!
I have an appointment to speak to another’s neurologist/neurosurgeon team (Roland and Golfino) and will see what they have to say.
Maybe one of you were in a similar situation? Looking for any advice possible! Thanks!
