Carrie, Is tomorrow the big day??? Remember to TAKE IT EASY!!!

Mylesmom,
I think my postop instructions said flying is OK after 1 or 2 weeks, so you should be fine with that timeframe. I started with an independent audiologist last summer -- just to prove to my nagging husband that my hearing was fine. Lo and behold, she said my audiogram was a textbook example of otosclerosis and she sent me to an ENT. The ENT confirmed her diagnosis, and he is the one who did my surgery. He never suggested waiting, but he also did not press me to have the surgery.

Looking back, I always felt a "fullness" or stuffiness in my ears that I just chalked up as a residual effect of a cold. Now I know that it was the hearing loss itself. I also realized how much lip reading I was doing to get by.
