... I had my surgery Monday and hear nothing. I know the packing is in there, but I very nervous that I made a mistake, I still had some hearing in that ear. Just needed to put thay out there. Also, when were you able to wash your hair? (27 replies)
... The success rate for stapedectomies is over 95%, so yes, AFAIK, everyone got their hearing back, or at least their conductive (bone) loss. As you know, the surgery does nothing for nerve-related hearing loss, and sometimes, the conductive loss masks a nerve loss. Since you did have good hearing right after the operation, that means that the prosthetic is working properly, as... (27 replies)
... But even though they lost it in recovery period, their hearing came back eventually right? It is so hard not to be alarmed by it. It almost makes me want to cry! It is awesome how much gain you had!!!! I could hear so good after surgery. I know I can't gain more than what I can hear with the air loss due to the nerve damage but it would be awesome to get that much... (27 replies)

... I've read lots of comments from people that they initially had GREAT hearing immediately after the surgery, and then lost it during the recovery period. I have to assume that that is due to the accumulation of blood clots forming after the surgery. As for the gain I got, it was about 40-50 db in the lower frequencies, and maybe 10-15 db in the upper frequencies. I still... (27 replies)
... I am just concerned that I could hear so well the first couple of days but it seems like that went away. I hope it comes back. What is the average gain you guys got from the surgery? (27 replies)
... I had a stapendectomy last Thursday on my right ear at U of Iowa Hospitals. I noticed my hearing was really good the right after surgery. I had the nausea patch behind my ear so I did not get sick this time. I could hear the humming of the machines in my room (I spend the night there) and my sister whispering, and the surgeon whispering in my ear in the OR. Today it seems... (27 replies)
... Yes, the drumming is your heartbeat. You're hearing the blood through the veins in your head. It should go away gradually as your brain gets used to hearing things again. Good luck! (27 replies)
... Thank you I feel a lot better about what you just told me. Although I have a question about tinnitus, would the drumming also be that? Before the surgery I ever or barely had any ringing, drumming or sounds at all. Out of curiosity I tried to match my heart beats and the drum beats and they seem to be very similar. :) (27 replies)
... Everything that you've been experiencing sounds completely normal to me. Some people seem to hear soft sounds immediately after the operation, but that goes away as blood clots form in your ear and block the ear canal, which already has gelform in it (packing against the eardrum). You have to wait until both the packing is removed AND the blood clots dry up before sound... (27 replies)

... Hello everyone, I just got my stape. Surgery Dont this Thursday 9/12 & I want to talk a little about my experience so far and would like to see if someone that has been through it already put some input? :/ it's hard to talk about this when no one in my circle of friends knows what the heck I'm talking about! Anyway, my surgery went well. Or that's what my mom tells me my... (27 replies)
... Nope. The first ENT I spoke to did say that my audiogram indicated that I had a bone gap, which is why he sent me for the first CT scan. But the radiologist's report eliminated both otosclerosis and superior semicircular canal dehiscence (I didn't have symptoms of SSCD in any event), so I was told that I had a mixed hearing loss and advised to get hearing aids. When I... (3 replies)

... All I can say is that I had a stapedectomy in April 2004 and at first, I had all of the post-surgery problems that so many report. I hated what happened and thought I had made the wrong decision to have surgery. I had all sorts or extra sounds in my ear, and all of the sounds were too loud and were distorted. Well, after a year, things really did clear up and the bottom... (35 replies)

... s through the ear, it is not unusual for the taste sensation to be altered for several weeks or months following surgery. Oh, they also said that patients often report a metallic taste, yep me again! Recovery does occur. ... (177 replies)
