Hi - Where do I begin? I was diagnosed in February 2019, had my first and second consultations in April. I am told all 3 options are open to me. From diagnosis until a week after the first consult, W & W seemed like the way to go. I came down with a nasty cold/flu before the second. I experienced vertigo for the first time in my life. I lost all the hearing in my affected ear. Now that the bug is gone, I am left with no useable hearing in my affected ear and huge balance issues. I can handle no hearing in that ear, but I refuse to be sidelined by vestibular issues. I need to kick this to the curb. I am looking for any advice from you wise folks! Went out today and bought ginger chews and ginger tea (I heard it can help with balance) and found some PT exercises on youtube. I plan on starting real physical therapy soon, and am seriously considering Gamma Knife at the Mayo. I figured that if it stops growing I can hopefully get my balance caught up to where it can be stable. I am pretty active, not running marathons, but usually put 10,000 steps a day on my Fitbit. Thanks in advance for the wise words!!
