sudden hearing loss
Hello @jerry91, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.
Have you spoke with your Doctor about this? Sudden hearing loss of any kind is not normal and should be addressed sooner than later. Usually a hearing test will be done at the time of hearing loss and then repeated at intervals of time to track loss or gain of hearing.
When did your knee surgery take place?

yes and they did thiuro hearing test and they said their nothing more they could do
I had a very through hearing test they do not have a answer for me
Did you see an ENT?
I have been going to ent since I was 17 years old with several surgeries. I have otosclerosis both ears. Left is deaf now because surgery probably destroyed nerve and hearing aids won't work. The right is getting worse and worse and aid is not helping much . Told I need a cochlear because another aid won't help either. I didn't quite understand why you needed a hearing test after knee surgery and they told you your hearing is fine? First surgery I was 17 years old and have had tinnitus most of my life but I am used to it I guess. But I noticed i sing songs in my mind only and maybe why it doesn't bother me so much.
Have you put much thought into a cochlear implant? You may be interested in this story about a patient at Mayo that also suffered from tinnitus and ended up getting a cochlear implant- https://sharing.mayoclinic.org/2018/06/20/a-noise-filled-hearing-loss-journey/
I have develop partial hearing loss in my left ear after knee surgey and increase tinnitus wet to ent no tumor hearing loss of over 25%
