I am writing to you to give you an update on my progress and to thank you for helping me so successfully with my large acoustic neuroma resection.
It is now almost 4 months since the procedure on 4 August and my progress according to my local medical team is nothing short of extraordinary – about three months ahead of what they consider normal recovery My facial nerve is 90% healed and consequently the paralysis is almost totally lifted. I am doing all therapies I can find including exercise, cognitive psychological etc. I am currently getting ready to return to work I have had a follow-up MRI which shows no residual tumor( it was done on a 5mm machine )and a full neuropsychological assessment that shows no cognitive problems at all.
So, from my family and I a very big Thank You for the amazing progress I have made since your incredible work inside my brain.
I will never forget you Dr. Fukushima, and Lori and the incredible contribution you made to getting me healthy again.
