Re: Eustachian Tube Catheter

hi,
i have a few questions.
when you say your ear spazzes out, can you describe this a bit better? do outside sounds bother you?
the area that your sinuses hurt, any other sensations?
any other symptoms that could be a clue?
dr poe in boston does surgery for p e t, you will not lose your hearing. he is a top dr and takes great care of his patients.
there is also a nasal spray designed to swell the e tube up, called patulend, you have to do a search on it and order it.
dont give up. there are options
lib

Re: Eustachian Tube Catheter

Hi,
I have been suffering from PET for about a year. It is really debilitating. Has anyone out there found a cure? Doctors I have seen just put me on decongestants and nose sprays. What a joke!
I am seeing a holistic health practioner and she says it is due to an overall drying out of my body (yin deficiency in Chinese medicine). I am on herbs and acupuncture right now. I feel great....my PET is ever present though.
I live near the House Ear Clinic. Does this surgery that everyone is talking about work? Would it be worth an appointment?
I am at my wits end. It is becoming increasingly difficult to enjoy life with this condition. Is there help out there?

Is Doctor Poe the way to go?

Hi...I am very new to this whole talking about medical issue on the web but, when I typed in Dr. Poe's name and saw the comments I had to get more info. I have been suffering for the last 7 months with Eustachian Tube Patulous on my right side. At first no one knew what it was they put a tube in my ear. The second doctor knew what it was and tried to fix it with a Lazar surgery only causing infection and a lot of discomfort and pain. I have just been referred to Dr. Poe who is 5 hours if not more from were live in NJ and before I make the trip and spend the money I want to get some info on him Can you help me? I have read some of your postings and I know you kow how it feels to hear yourself breath and I would like to get over this as soon as I possibly can is Dr. Poe the way to go?

Thanks for your help!
