| | haering loss in children - fluctuation and progress
my 5 years old son was diagonised as a uniletral (one side)hearing loss at age 3. in fact he himself noticed and claimed that why poeple do not hear from left ear! late on during teh past 2 years he had experinced a fluctuation in hearing in teh right ear. specially during and after common cold. ENT specialist have always claimed that this is to liquid in teh middle ear but even after insertion of tubes is happend and even worse. we did ABR and PTA test and they showed that even from last time (2 yaers back) there was a drop in haering in teh right ear. the sad story is that teh frequency of these fluctuations is getting more and teh drop in teh attcks is worse. teh ENT specialists claims that they do not know teh reason and maybe it continue till total deafness.
i would like to hear from any body who knows about similar cases and any possible treatment. we are stock and near the edge.
