It was a benign tumor located on the bottom left of my brain, in between my ear and my brain. I really don’t know what else to say, I don’t know all the fancy terms, and besides, they have been telling me everything in Russian haha. Also no, they did not have me do any imaging in the US. In fact each doctor I talked to there treated me like I was wasting their time. My surgeon here was surprised, he thought it was standard procedure to do an MRI when someone loses hearing so young.

They are much much more thorough here, they really check EVERYTHING before doing a surgery, to make sure that it will all be okay. The hospital food is decent, too.

Yeah, the surgery, the hospital stay, and everything else is costing me about $3k. 170,000 Rubles. I have no idea how much it would cost in the US, but my guess is at least 50k.

Not in the US, no.
