Had a long talk with my ENT/surgeon this afternoon. He called to see how I was doing.
I described what I can hear…he said that is great news, getting the high’s already
Told me to not worry about hearing speech right now at all. He put a huge glob of packing behind my eardrum. It’s to hold the eardrum and absorb some of the blood and liquid. That’s what is making the clicking noises and why I can’t hear so good right now. I’m not supposed to hear anything until it dissolves, which takes about 3-5 weeks usually.
…and that big glob of packing is also why I feel like I have a very slight ear ache
He’s funny and I like him, he was excited that I can hear dishes and car doors!
…We’re going to schedule the left ear as soon as I can…probably in a couple of months
