Hello, Thnx to contact us. If I am your treating doctor I would like to advice you that schwannoma is a tumor of nerve. It has nothing to do with vibration work. many people who do not work on atmosphere of vibration even also has schwannoma. Even the return is not dependent on the vibration but, I advice you do not work when you are freshly operated. If you have anything else to ask please contact me. Thanx. Dr. Arun Tank
