Acoustic Neuroma Surgery

  • Keep head elevated on 2 or more pillows when in bed.
  • Avoid strenuous activities. You may continue most other regular activities. 
  • The sutures behind the ear will usually be removed around 2 weeks after surgery. 
  • If there is an abdominal wound, keep it clean and dry. 
  • For pain, use Tylenol as directed, or prescription medication as directed. The pain is usually not severe and will subside in a few days. 
  • Call the office if you experience severe headaches, severe dizziness, persistent, clear nasal drainage, drainage from the wound or nose, worsening facial weakness, or fever above 101.5 F. 
  • Make an appointment to see the doctor in 3-4 weeks. Follow up times may vary and you’ll be given specific dates after your procedure.
