Glad your surgery went well! I had the same surgery done last year and still have some lingering symptoms from it. Did you have any facial paralysis? I'm totally deaf in my left ear but my facial nerve wasn't damaged and I'm a little numb on my fave still so I was wondering how the Russian surgery went in comparison?

Could also be referred to as a vestibular schwannoma but it's basically the same thing

Yes, my doctor said in 3-5 years after surgery it should look like nothing happened but the hearing is gone for good but hey things could always be worse and it doesn't affect my day to day so it's fine. Thank you for sharing your story!
