I experienced Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SSHL) in my LEFT ear June 1 which was not diagnosed by an ENT until 90 days later even with repeated visits to doctors during June, July & August (GP, ER walk-in clinic etc…)
On day 90 the ENT gave me a Intra Tympanic Steroid injection and a second 6 days later. Neither helped. However I am left with a “moderate” sized HOLE in my eardrum which has not healed in over 2 months.
A few questions:
- How common is it to be left with a permanent hole in you eardrum from this procedure?
- What are the likely causes?
- What hearing aid would likely be most helpful for my UNILATERAL hearing loss? I am currently trying the Resound Cala 8 from Costco
BTW my hearing is normal in my right ear and MRI was OK.
Booked to consult with a different ENT Dec 8
