Successful Retrosigmoid Surgery!

I had my surgery August 12th as scheduled. All went Well!
I will post more details soon.
Main takeaways are tumor was growing from the cochlear nerve, was removed entirely, and my hearing is no worse. I am out of ICU and may be able to switch to hotel tomorrow.
Thank you all for the wealth of Info and support!

Congratulations on the surgery going well!!!  Wonderful to hear of the successful outcome. (pun intended :)  Here's hoping for great rest and I look forward to your future posts.  My tumor is a tad bigger than yours was and I also received counsel from Mayo so, I'd love to know your experience later when you're more rested, etc.
All The Best!!!  d

Wow, what a week!
I had a repairative surgery for a csf leak on Tuesday the 16th.
I'm still not ready to post a full update but it will come soon.
I will say this, Mayo Clinic is above excellence in every way.
Bless everyone and in the next few days I'll post more details.

I'm looking forward to your full update, TrueKnits! 

I agree that the Mayo Clinic is excellent in so many ways!  There are other good options as well, but Mayo is one of the best, in my humble opinion.

We are rooting for you that your recovery goes well, TrueKnits!
Burning Tongue, Loss of Hearing & Balance, and Tinnitus led to MRI. Very small AN found on 11/23/2021
While watching and waiting, lost significant hearing. WRS now at 12% (down from 100%). Was fitted with CROS system on 3/7/22.  Stable MRI on 7/29/22
No treatment yet.
