My name is turnip,
I am a newbie who lives in AR. Am a 63 old male recently diagnose with AN. Size of tumor is 1.5cm x 1.2cm x 1.2cm left side. I am experiencing quite a bit of balance issues, numbness in my lower lip, some facial nerve numbness on left side. Tongue feeling weird as is my taste. Guess many others have had some symptoms, some people not it seems. This all started most recently in last 2 weeks.
Neurosurgeon will not do surgery until June as he seems to have very busy surgery schedule.
This has sure been overwhelming but am better at accepting this all I think. Is truly about one day at a time isn't it?
I have been on line and have read alot of info from everyone who has had surgery, has been very helpful. Thanks for being so honest and upfront. It helps us newbies and our spouses in understanding what is pre and post surgery.
I have gone for consult with neurosurgeon Dr. Ali Khrisht in Little Rock, AR. He is currently with St. Vincent Hospital, was with UAMS in Little Rock prior.
Question, is there anyone on line who had surgery or info on surgeon by name of Dr. Ali Krisht in Little Rock, AR? Just wanting to know reputation, how surgery went, credentials,reputation? Wanting feedback if possible please.
Appreciate any info anyone can provide please.
Also, Need info form those who have Tricare insurance please.
