I meant to update this on the March 10th (the one-month mark) but was unable to until today.

I had been feeling a weird pressure in my ear and diminished hearing. On the 10th however, I drove from my college to my home. It's about a 2.5 hour trip through a mountainous region of the Eastern US. My ear popped! The entire time I was home I had no pressure and could hear almost perfectly!

However, as soon I went to visit my relatives about 15 minutes from house, my ears un-popped. It stayed like that until I went back to my house where it again popped.

On my trip back to college today, my ear semi-popped. So it is feeling better than it was last week, but not as good as it was when I was at home.

I guess my ear has trouble adjusting to elevation changes. This will be interesting when I fly to California next week!
Glad to hear from you studentryan....

Still the same no improvement in my hearing. I am going in next week for a cat scan and then the next day to my doctor. Last week on Tues or Wed. I started hearing static sound in my ear...drove me batty to say the least. over the weekend it really started to wear on me so I figured I might want to ask. I still have the popping..clicking...crunching sound..pressure not to bad but I have this feeling daily like something is in there weird. So we talked on the phone and he said he wanted an xray to see what is going on in there and he will not put a tube unless it is needed ....so that made me feel better. I feel like my hearing has gotten worse but it could be because of the static. Last Friday my ear popped and the static got louder...scared me to say the least..all I kept thinking was not louder....Mostly I hear like I have a blockage in my canal.... I still can hear my finger rub on a cotton ball or even just putting my finger in there to rub it is louder then my left ear thats for sure. One thing that has improved is my dizziness...It seems like it is getting better.... : )

Someone actually messaged me and said they had the same as I am experiecing and it was fluid and the healing process.... and she was about where I am in recovery and felt she was destended to be deaf then things started happening for her.......so I am keeping my fingers crossed that this catscan will give us some reasons...

It seems like I am accepting my results better then I was a week ago....I was a mess to say the least...I hate to say this..but I never even thought it might not work or not give me the results I am looking for... but my hearing is still better then before surgery.I still need my hearing aid BUT i can hear my alarm clock and if you talk loud that too...so I have improved alittle...I am looking at this as some need glasses to help our vision..I need a hearing aid to help me with this...

I do feel like my doctor is not giving up..Once i have the catscan next week I think I will have some idea what will come next....
