Distinct possibility. Had MRI scan to confirm sugeons decision that surgury is required (for the 3rd time) Just waiting on surgeons quote for surgery my daughter urgently needs. No private health cover & not prepared to have her on waiting list for 6-9mths. Already 60% hearing loss to one ear. Previous (2) operations were 1hr both times &cost me nearly $5000. This one is serious. Will be 3hrs. Have no choice, it has to be done & surgury is all using microscope. Risks will be total hearing loss & loss of facial movement as the area to be operated on is now right next to the main nerve controlling facial muscles. Depending on invoice, first thing to go will be the bikes.
