Hi everyone....Just got Dx with AN about a year ago and have seen a radio oncologist and a neurosurgeon.  Im 46 and my lesion is small and the neurosrgeon said usually my case most people choose to zap with radiation, but I was wondering  if any one could share if they had this treatment and if they got any side effects months or weeks later and what were they.  Thanks Im glad I found this forum   steve

Sometimes it's easier to speak on the phone vs. trying to type what you want to say.   I just wanted to share this with you all.

BTW, I am on the WTT list and if anyone needs my good ears, I'm always here for you (whether on phone, email, etc).

Hang in there all!

Hi Teri,

If you haven't already been in touch with the  ANA headquarters, contact them directly for the WTT list.  The office staff is incredibly helpful and a great source of information.  You can contact them by phone or email -  Phone: 770-205-8211 or 1-877-200-8211 (toll free)
Email:info@anausa.org

How can we get on the Willing to Talk list. My husband had Proton Therapy and he is willing to talk about his favorable outcome.  Thanks in advance for your reply.

Dear KeepSmiling,

Thanks for your interest in the Willing to Talk (WTT) list.  Interested applicants should contact ANA for a WTT packet and application forms.

Take care,

The phone number, 1-877-xxx-xxxx, is NOT ANA.  The other number looks right.

Admin note:  1-877-200-8211 is the correct number to contact the ANA directly.  I deleted the incorrect number for security purposes.  CD

Hi
The willing to talk list is an actual list of patients willing to talk to you on the phone. If you call the Acoustic Neuroma Association office they will provide the list. You can call someone on the list who has had a similar experience and talk to them.
Sorry that you were recently diagnosed.
I don't know about the headaches, but there might be others who do.
Maybe post your question on another thread where people will notice it more.
Good luck.

Hi Melanie,
What is your phone number so I can call and talk. I have been just diagnosed with a large AN on the left and need an eat to listen so I can calm down.
Thanks
Regina
