My Miracle Brain Surgery

I am a single mother of three daughters. For 2-3 years, I suffered with facial numbness, headaches, loss of hearing and balance problems. Due to this, my primary care physician rushed me to have an MRI. Then, I was diagnosed with an Acoustic Neuroma. As each day passed, the tumor deteriorated my hearing. I also felt that my ability to be a wonderful mother was also affected. After extensive research I found a great neurosurgeon that was able to save my hearing and most importantly my life. My surgery in itself has been a complete success-my neurosurgeon was able to resect the entire tumor. Now, I have my hearing back and my children have their mother back. I was very lucky to have been in the care of a gifted, talented, and cutting edge neurosurgeon.
