I've seen a traditional chinese mecine Doctor in the past for stomach issues.  My wife emailed him about my AN and asked if there is anything he would suggest.
He says"The Chinese theory behind tumors is that there is a blockage of energy causing the mass to form.  He feels that intensive acupuncture twice a week to help
increase Shadow's energy flow into the auditory canal in conjunction with a herbal remedy called Dr. Lai's ABC taken to reduce the size of the tumor is warranted.  He would like Shadow to try this protocol for 3-4 months.
Has anyone heard or tried this?  If it changes my surgery from total hearing loss to a different surgery with chance of hearing I might try it.  Needless to say it will cost me big $$$$ out of pocket.
