GK
« on: March 06, 2020, 01:26:44 pm »
Just received my results from my 8 year MRI.  Dr. Lunsford (UPMC) was the only doctor willing to use GK on a large acoustic neuroma (3.3) and it would be fair to say that I am extremely happy with the results.  Over the years it has shrunk 80% by volume and the measurements have decreased as indicated below.  Hearing loss and balance are the only remaining issues and I was going to have them regardless of the treatment I chose.
