Hearing issues after radiation for Acoustic neuroma
I was given radiation treatment for my acoustic neuroma which left me with a large hole in my eardrum. This constantly bothers me I hear lots of noises in it constantly mostly a loud ringing and whooshing sound I put cotton in my air sometimes to see if it will calm it down but usually not. I was told don’t worry you will get it sewn shut when your treatment is finished well it’s been a couple of years and nobody wants to see it shut. I have a big problem with congestion on the same side of my nose as that ear. I won’t have hearing that comes back in that ear so why bother. I think it would make a difference even in my nose and also the loud noises in that ear. How has anyone else been treated for this? I have a bunch of autoimmune rare health issues that take me to many doctors. I feel like I am out of control and just spinning in circles with most physicians not even wanting to accept me as a patient because I have so many autoimmune issues. I really wish there was a place to go where a group of doctors at the same facility would help people like me instead of many doctors yet they are all unsure of what to do for certain. I also had a Latera implant done that seems to have helped some but right side of nose is usually still congested.
