Willowloo1: If your hearing loss is predominantly “conductive,” (from the otosclerosis), you are fortunate in that you just need more “volume” (the vast majority of people with hearing loss have the “nerve” type of loss, so their needs can be more complicated). In my experience, patients with otosclerosis (who haven’t undergone surgery, I might add) hear well even with very economical hearing aids. I’d start with something basic first and you’ll probably do fine. There are amplified stethoscopes; perhaps someone else can paste a link.
