Brief Answer:

Be in regular follow up

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

The prognosis of acoustic schwannoma is very good.

If surgery is successful, then recurrence is rare.
Reported recurrence is less than 1%.

The follow-up is required regularly in a year or two.

Apart from supportive treatment, no drugs are required.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
