mwatto, Thank you so much again & again for the info!
richcooks, Thanks for your reply too! It helps a great deal to hear of the success stories with retained hearing from fractionated radiation. 12yrs and still solid hearing is wonderful news!!! Congratulations! I have tinnitus too in both ears so I "hear" your pain.
Any more experts recommendations are welcome. Dr Chang seems to be the leader simply because they have a CK machine at Stanford and he regularly does fractionated work on said machine.
I'm going to keep pushing in this direction and more than likely make a decision in the next 3 months or so. I don't want to wait too long as the stats from Dr Changs video say that earlier treatment for hearing preservation has a better success rate then waiting and watching. Don't want to be saying I wish I would've.
