I am 55 women; I noticed has an Acoustic Neuroma at my left side 1.4cm couple month ago. And I had my Cbyerknife treatment (3times) last week 8/8/12, 8/9/12 and 8/10/12. But about 2 hours after first treatment 8/8/12 I was very tired and my both ears had pressure and noise, left side much strong than right side. The pressure and noise strong and strong take few minutes then I noticed my left ear hearing completed loss, and right ear not clean than before. I called my radiation oncologist, he said because swelling, he prescription DEXAMETHASONE for me, I start to take the pill twice a day, and finished the treatments in 8/9/12 and 8/10/12. I guess the medication helps me, my right ear back to normal, and my left ear still NO hearing but the pressure getting better. After 4 days that completed Cbyerknife treatments. I feel: Tired, left ear pressured, stuffed, little noised and NO hearing. But if I lie down, the pressure was less strong. Also I feel little unbalanced. I am so worry now, there is anyone had similar experience may share with me? Is my hearing will come back after the swelling gone? Is it normal that I had those feeling in the begging treatment? The medication I was take will affect the treatment? Will reduce the radiation power to the tumor? How soon I will know the Cbyerknife works for my tumor? I appreciate if anyone can email me back give me some information, suggestion, or ideas. Thank you so much for your help.

I am a 56 year-old female and I had my cyberknife treatment 5 months ago for my 1.4 cm acoustic neroma and had a MRI scan 3 months later and there was no change to my tumor. Recently, however, I get more dizzy when I stand up or walk. Sitting down is a bit better but once I'm on my feet, I get more dizzy and sometimes stumble when I walk. I want to know if this is normal and why this happens. If anyone has experience with this, how long does this last? Also, I still cannot hear in my left ear. Does anyone know why or have experience? And I don't take any medication. I will greatly appreciate any response. Thank you.

It is not too uncommon to have this happen. Sometimes a short of trial of steroids is helpful. Call your doctor about that. It is unusual to recover hearing after treatment. WE can often keep it from getting worse, but I can think of only a couple of cases where it got better.
