post operation.. disturbances
I´m 22 years old I had a stapedectomy, done when I was 19, I have never worn a hearing aid previously, I only have the left ear affected so far, when I was 10 they diagnose my hearing problem and I had an MRI scan and they said part of my ear nerve was dead due to a thrombosis, and then when I was 18 they finally diagnosed me with otosclerosis, I have a lot of questions for my ENT specialist as it seems all of you understand a lot more than me even down to the test results I have no clue about which is my fault for not informing myself correctly...
anyway since the op I have suffered for some weird thing (Only way I know to describe it)
1. I cannot tell where sound is coming from especially high pitches i.e mobile phone, I can spend a lot of time finding where a sound is coming from.
2. I cant go anywhere with loud noises I hear double from the operated ear. it becomes very uncomfortable.
I gather my hearing is getting worse and I also understand with nerve damage only so much can be repaired, I have an appointment in June with the specialist and I wonder is any of this normal and is there anything I should be asking for??
Also for any women out there I use an depoprogovera an anticontraceptive, I read there is a side affect that can make the illness advance faster, Ihave mentioned this to the gyne and my ENT but they arent sure..
Thank you all
P.s I live in Spain, dont know if that helps at all
