I had a stapedectomy on Thursday (01/12/11) and all went well. After the surgeon folded the drum back my hearing seemed a lot better. The canal was packed shortly after which of course reduced my hearing s you’d expect. I was discharged the same day and went home.
The next day my system was in turmoil due to all the drugs pumped into me and I had constipation. I tried not to strain whilst on the toilet but it was unavoidable. Since then I’ve had really bad ringing tinnitus in my ear. Other symptoms are negligible but the tinnitus is awful.
Could I have caused any damage whilst straining on the toilet? (funny I know, jokes welcome) I know that tinnitus is a post procedure symptom in some cases, should I be worried?
Thanks in advance
