Ears drained by doctor but still can’t hear.
Three weeks ago I got a double ear infection and have not been able to hear. I already am hearing impaired so I can barely hear anything with the muffled clogging. Prednisone did nothing, antibiotics got rid of the infection but not the fluid. Two days ago the doctor cut incisions in ear drums and suctioned out some of the fluid. Like a myringtomy without the tubes. Yesterday I woke up to a lot of fluid in my ears but still can’t hear. Same with today. I feel like I’m going crazy and just want to hear again or at least at the level I was previously able to. Anyone else have experience with this? I saw another thread similar but no updates from people saying they healed. Maybe it’s a good thing though and they abandoned the thread when they felt better. I feel hopeless.
