Acoustic Neuroma Surgery Wait Time

Edited , 5 users are following.


I have recently been diagnosed with a 25mm acoustic neuroma. I am a 33 year old female in pretty good overall health. The tumour is pressing on my brainstem. I live in Ontario, Canada. I saw the neurosurgeon today and was told it is at least a 10 month wait for surgery. i was told some people wait over 2 years. Any Canadians who had an acoustic neuroma receive surgery? How long did you wait? 10 months seems long!

    If I have the constant tinnitus does it always mean is AN? I had an MRI scan on the 24th of March and still waiting for the results. I chose to go without contrast, can they still detect the AN?
