| | Hearing loss due to thick fluid in ears
I have been diagnosed with thick (gluelike) fluid in the ears. My ent suggested tubes in both ears. This has helped somewhat, but whenever I have a cold, the fluid back up and results in hearing loss. Have been using Ciprodex which helps sometimes. Also,the fluid will drain from the ear sometimes. Has anyone dealt with this situation. I have been told, it is not unlike what a 2 year old experiences when the ear tubes have not fully developed, ence the use of tubes.
