I saw my doctor for the 4th time in 3 months and also saw another well known neurotologist while home in Phoenix. Both doctors told my husband and I that I had run out of new options for improving my symptoms. After talking with my husband and parents for over 2 months we have decided that I am going to take the next step and have the vestibular nerve section (similar to labrynthectomy but not severing my hearing nerve). My doctor and his fellow neurologist who also do the surgery have time available in February. Now I wait for insurance approval and completing all pre-op requirements. I am a little numb and scared at the same time but I believe this is the best choice for me right now. Today the weather is a little yucky and I've been dealing with an attack since waking up. I so wish I could take my girls out or play ball with my boys. I recognize the risks but I feel like I am missing out on so much. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!

I had the shunt surgery and that helped somewhat, but other than that, nothing I have tried has helped or made a difference. ...
