Re: tinnitus six months after stapedectomy

sue, I hope your hearing is better and the ringing has maybe stopped. have you learned to live with it as your dr. suggested? Can you tell me how or what you did, or how you are doing now/ I have had 3 stapedectomies, the left ear went great but the right ear needed 2 surgeries, and they did not go sooo good. I can hear things tables away in a restaurant but have constant tinnitus. I have dealt with the ringing for 7 years but everything I had been doing quit working. I went back to my otolaryngolist to tell him about my problem and asked him to sign papers for ssi disability and he said, " wait, let's not be in such a hurry". Seven years of unbelievable, constant ringing and he wants me to be more patient.
