I visited Dr. C a couple of months ago for a two-year follow-up, and everything was fine. The MRI looked good, and any irregularities attributable to scar tissue had faded some since the one-year follow-up MRI.
My balance is normal, no headaches, and no facial weakness. Obviously, I still can't hear out of my left ear, but even that is just part of my "normal" now and I rarely give it much thought. I'm still not interested in a BAHA. Right now I'm looking forward to spring finally arriving in D.C. so that I can ride my bike to work again.
I hope that this blog is still helping to give newly diagnosed AN-ers a sense of what the journey is like and the knowledge that there can be a happy ending after finding out that there's a thing growing in your head.
