Hearing Disorders Board Index

I've had two stapedectomys. one on each ear. With the second i've had problems with distortion, crackling etc for two years. I'm still trying to find a doctor who can figure out what is wrong. in your case I'd say that 5 weeks is still a pretty short period of time. Unless he removed the packing from the outside ear already chances are there is still some there and chances are there is still packing inside your ear. So i would not be worried that your hearing is not better yet. Give it some time.
As far as not hearing clearly I would also give it some time.
My first one went perfect but it does take time for everything to settle down.
I am now 4 months post op & I remember having doubts as to whether I should've just settled for a hearing aid. It has really only been within the last 6 weeks that I can honestly say I have noticed a significant improvement in my hearing. For the few few weeks, I spent hours each day pouring over all the posts on these boards & wondered why my results didn't measure up to what others experienced. I still have tinnitus in my ear but it isn't as bad as it was the first couple months following surgery. I still experience some occasional crackling but it doesn't bother me as much as it used too. I am thankful that I now can lie in bed at night and hear the sounds around me instead of hearing something like white noise. Keep in touch with your dr and just give it time.
