It's always good to learn that things are going well for a member.  I'm hoping I'll be at a similar point one day.   :)

So often it's the 'bad stuff' - understandably - that features on forum pages.  Here in the UK the website forum pages of BANA are little visited anyway compared with those of ANA.  Facebook seems to have seduced potential website members.

Hi Derek,

Thanks for your encouragement.  I just begin the journey.  Baby steps... Baby aspirin steps.

Hi daoisthere...

I have read your previous posts and your essential thorough research has undoubtedly had a major impact on the decision to choose conservative management of your AN. Albeit I have not personally taken aspirin I agree with your decision based upon the medical evidence which you outlined in another thread. Very best of luck on your AN journey.

Residing UK. In 'watch & wait' since diagnosis in March 2002 with right side AN. Initially sized at 2.5cm and now self reduced to 1.3cm.
All symptoms have abated except impaired hearing on affected side which is not a problem for me.

Hi Derek...

The wonderful support from this group is just unbelievable.   The anxiety was really having an impact on my tinnitus/outcome in general.  Now that I have made a decision,  I can already feel the effect it is having on my emotional outcome.  I know that things don't always workout the way that one plans on. But at least I am having my say on the matter.

Peace,
