Question: removal results of a neuroma schwanoma
|GaDaEa - Mon May 18, 2009 9:07 pm||
I had a benign tumor on my brain stem reduced in size to very small. The doctor said I would return to normal. It has been 10 months. I still have double vision (he thought would go away 4 or 5 months ago). My ear still has a "wind blowing" sensation. My left side of my face, head and inside of my mouth (tongue and gums)are tingling a lot.
I don't know what to think. Am I getting better? is the greater tingling and pain, good?

With tumor reduction methods like cyberknife, tumor size and symptom reduction may take months.
In your case since the expected duration of symptom reduction was predicted to be was 5 months or less and you are still having symptoms, it would be best to follow up with your oncologist.
