Day 25 Post op

Well, the distortion is back, but without the opening and closing. My allergies are under control so I know that isn't the issue. I think I still must have fluid in my ear, it feels plugged and I can sense something there when I lie down. Patience!!! I know I have a long road to go but I just feel like my body is ready for this to be healed and my ear isn't following suit.

I had a bit of a panic attack the other day thinking that the distortion will never go away....but after going back and reading these posts over and over I realize that it's definitely a common thing. So I"m just avoiding loud noise as much as possible and relaxing.

Other than the distortion I haven't noticed much else. Maybe a bit of tension in the side of my face. I think I'm sort of holding stiff to protect the ear from anything. Also there has been some congestion and some sinus drainage. A bit of dizziness too. But.......I can hear out of the ear, which is amazing every day. I just have to remember the end result is going to be so worth it!

I go a week from today for my first hearing test and I guess the doctor is going to look me over and tell me if I can start getting water in the ear. I've been advised against wearing earplugs until I see the doc. I've been doing light exercising but nothing too crazy. Better safe than sorry. Also, the nurse said that very LIGHT blowing of my nose is ok. I"m not sure about flying but I"ll keep you posted as to what he says.

Take care everyone,
