I want to share my current status, in case it helps others who are considering their options. My AN was diagnosed on 10/23/23, at 12 mm x 6mm x 6mm. I had already lost a lot of hearing, but what remained was important to me (word discrimination 30%, quite a bit of pitches still registering), and my balance and vertigo were impacted, but improved with PT. Within 2 months I had a swift increase in symptoms, lost all hearing, and MRI in mid-February showed tumor at 14 mm x 7 mm x 8 mm. It was ONLY measured because I was moving forward with prep. for SRS. The doctors would not do another scan for me sooner than 6 months, except as part of my upcoming treatment. So this is a reminder: not all ANs are slow growing! I truly wish I had decided on my treatment and treatment team sooner, and moved ahead, rather than believing I had "plenty of time," which we are constantly told. Please remember that smaller tumors have better success rates, and the best outcome you can expect from SRS, is the level of hearing you went in with.
