I had moderate - moderately severe hearing loss in one ear, and had a delayed treatment about 4 months later (this past July). For a few days after each steroid injection I would get lots of popping sounds. It felt like the liquid was working its way through.
The treatments gave me a 10db improvement, and I got hearing aids, but just a couple of weeks ago I woke up to normal hearing. I have no idea how much of an anomaly this is. It’s been almost 3 weeks now and I’m keeping my fingers double & triple crossed that I retain my hearing. The ENT had no explanation for this unexpected improvement, and only offered me well wishes on my recovery.
My hearing came back just a couple of days before my trial period was up. My audiologist extended the trial by a month. If I can still hear in 2 more weeks I’m returning the hearing aids.
(ignore the sig file. It’s no longer accurate. As of now L has improved almost to the level of R.)
