has anyone seen Dr. Robert Owens in Dallas?
« on: January 15, 2007, 11:12:19 am »
I was diagnosed in March of 2006 and we went to different places that seem to have led us here.   I read some great stuff about the doctors in Austin so maybe I should go there.  Anyone have any thing encouraging?  thanks! kimmer

After suffering sudden and significant hearing loss in early November and having an MRI last month which showed a small 3-4mm AN, I have scheduled a first appointment with Dr. Owens at the end of the month.  I would also be interested in any information people may have.

kimmer, how large or small is your AN?  Have you seen a neurosurgeon, or Otolaryngygolost?  Have you had an MRI with contrast?

Hi Boppie sorry for not responding to you sooner.   I haven't been feeling well lately.  I am scheduled to see the Neuro Otologist on Wednesday the7th.  I don't know what to expect really.  Do I schedule surgery then??  I am sure that surgery is the route I prefer.  I have watched the Gamma Knife procedure as well as the sugerical approach.  I do not want radiation at all.  So, Boppie can you tell me what is next?  I meet him and then talk surgery? I am a bundle of questions without answers.  Thank you for asking I hope i didn't go on too much.  It is a small tumor.  The dimensions were not mentioned to me.  yes i have had the mri with contrast.  I had the first one a year ago and then the second at six months and they said it was a small vestibular shwanomma.

I don't know if it's too late, but I'm seeing Dr. Owens now and have been very happy with him so far.
