My AVM behind my ear was operated on in 2000. All I could hear day and night was my heart beating. The way I was finally able to get the Doctor’s to believe me was when I realized anyone could hear my heart beating if you put a stethoscope to my head. The surgery access was also through my groin and they put six coils in to shut the blood flow down. Keeping my fingers crossed that I will never have that problem again.

Yeah I am quite familiar with that noise in your ear. Very annoying and distracting. I had embolization too, about 3 years ago. Unfortunately doc couldn’t block everything, so noise came back in about 6 months. Now it’s “recruiting” as he puts it. His only recommendation at this point is the radiation.

I did have noise in my ears after the first 2 surgeries to repair my ruptured AVM. I didn’t know if the embolizations were the cause. I just dealt with it. Luckily it went away after a few months. Toni
