Brain tumour transparency.
The type of brain tumour I have been diagnosed with is also known as an acoustic neuroma. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/acoustic-neuroma/symptoms-causes/
Aside from the ringing in my left ear, I have also had the hearing in that ear reduced by 50%. This is likely permanent. I can also feel a constant pressure in the area of my left temple. The tumour is located within the left side of my skull. Occasionally I can hear a swooshing sound, which apparently is blood flow. For some time I have also had small areas of my face twitch (ie. under my eye, or upper lip). My neck is also sore somewhat frequently. After being diagnosed, all these things seemed to be related. If you know of anyone having similar symptoms, please share with them.
I've had an extensive visual exam completed recently. I still don't need glasses, but my peripheral vision has been affected somewhat. We've been in touch with the surgeon's office & anticipate a face-to-face meeting soon. I am being optimistic, treating this experience as part of my overall message.
I have my first radio interview today. Early next week I'm being interviewed for a podcast. A lawyer has asked me to be his guest.
