Hi there, After a very long journey of trying to get a true diagnosis, of what was going on with me and my aching body. It turns out that it wasn't a simple Schwannoma as they thought it was. Turns out that it is a Chordoma that has grown around my vertebral artery and I am soon going to be having the angiogram to sever the artery and the surgery to have the tumor removed. I will be having a fusion from C2 to C5. Can anyone tell me what their recovery time was and how it was?
