CK going back again after 8 years
« on: December 19, 2019, 02:39:42 pm »
Has anyone had CK done twice on the same AN?

May of 2012 I had CK (size was 12.5 mm), last week found out the results of my last MRI; growth of 1 1/2 mm.  Current MRI compared to my MRI in 2017 which was 11 mm now it's 12X13 mm. 

Also, being treated for Meniere's disease in my "good" ear which only has 68% word recognition. 

Very concerned about this second go around since I'll be recouping at home by myself.  I have started calling around to Visiting Angels and Home Instead for information.

Going in two weeks for first consultation with oncologist.  I really don't want to have this done again but the neurotologist said it's not going to stop growing or shrink on it's own.   :'(

I've been looking over my old posting to try to remember what it was like after CK, maybe that's not a good idea since I'm 8 years older and the body is much different now; SSD left, balance issues etc.  Doc said well at least you have all that so you don't need to worry about or get use to it.  (smart A)  :-X
