... Regarding my previous post, I could only comment based on what I had read, and most of that indicated that sound sensitivity usually diminishes within a few (sometimes several) weeks. However, I am glad you contacted your surgeon's office for a professional opinion. Please let me know what you find out! I hope whatever you are experiencing is something that can be resolved...

... So funny Wendy (by the way I am Anne) - when I read your reply, I actually thought it was my own post. I definitely feel the same way about the ear being clogged with fluid. Tried a new specialist yesterday who did not notice any fluid. Sadly, what he thinks happened when I had my first surgery was that my inner ear suffered nerve damage since my word recognition is now at... (7 replies)
... I appreciate your response, thank you. I am wearing an earplug any time the noise will be too loud,(spin class,movie theater etc.) and it has helped. The surging did eventually go away within a few weeks as I hope your ringing will. It has seemed that each time something stops, another thing starts, so I'm no longer panicking. I'm pretty sure it's all (strangely) normal. Every... (10 replies)

... I had my stapedectomy surgery on April 8, 2014 -- if I had to go back at this point I wouldn't have had the surgery. I've had only moderate hearing improvement and I have a constant high pitch ringing in my ear. When I woke up from the surgery I immediately started throwing up and it continued for about 2 days. I was completely incapacitated from vertigo for about a week... (0 replies)

... If you just had your stapedectomy a week ago, it sounds like a little early to worry about not being able to hear, as your ear canal probably has both blood clots and the packing in it, which block sound waves from reaching your ear. Maybe you can get a second opinion? (2 replies)
... One week ago I had my second stapedectomy. I could hear when scratching the cotton ball in my operated ear and a faint dial tone after picking up the receiver. Six days later I could no longer hear either so I called my doctor who told me to come in. First he removed the outer packing and gave me a hearing test saying that my hearing had decreased by 30%. However, I can... (2 replies)
