... I have been reading this board ever since I found out I needed a stapedectomy. Long story short, I found out that I had otosclerosis when I was 18, just now having the surgery at 35. I have some nerve damage so I will still need hearing aids in both ears. I had the statedectomy yesterday and I have the normal side effects (dizziness, metal taste) but I noticed that I have...

... Mspgh Great to hear, pretty soon you will almost forget how it was before surgery. My adverse reaction to loud sounds are slowly receeding. Hope yours will also.

... Hi everyone, hope you can answer my questions. I'm scheduled to have surgery Feb 10th 2011 (a Thursday morning). I am a college student who will need to be back in class on Monday morning, so I have the weekend to rest at home. Will this be enough time? Also, do you think I will be able to drive the 2.5 hours from my home to college Sunday afternoon? I will have to... (41 replies)

... Helgadog, Those are all of the same issues/coping mechanisms I had! I can definitely identify with your frustrations. I am 5 weeks post-op and my only complaint is that I didn't have it done sooner! In fact, a co-worker recently told me I seem happier now that I can hear. I rarely have to ask people to repeat themselves, and I no longer have to "nod hopefully" during... (173 replies)

... Hi, It's no fun is it... the waiting game. I kept reading about people back to work after a few weeks with little side effects thinking uh-oh that's not me. I had 6 months off in the end I couldn't work for 3 truly. Noisy environments we're awful as I was saying. My friends dad wore ear muffs for weeks because he was so sensitive. My head was totally mixed up with... (10 replies)

Have a feeling of clogging (like having water in my ear) much of the time. luckily horrible, horrible vertigo went away after several weeks. Yes I can hear well out of my ear now but don't think it was worth the side effects (3 replies)
... Hi Diane, I want to stress to you that my results were NOT typical for this procedure. My surgery was not successful. My hearing is now worse than it was before, and I've developed a multitude of side effects, both from the post-op medications that I took (Prednisone and Ciprodex) and from the surgery itself. I've just learned that I have also developed a pituitary... (19 replies)
