Stapectomy second time around
Good Morning to all,
I went into Mass Eye and Ear for a stapectomy revision on March 3rd, one ear. Once the surgeon got into the ear a revision was not possible so I had my second stapectomy on this ear. Fourteen years ago my results were amazing and went well. This time not so lucky. Lots of ringing, pressure and tunnel sounds....I actually hear worse. The nerve from my tongue was compromised and now the left side(surgery side), I have metalic taste, numbness and feelings of a head cold. Yes I am 14years older then the first one however I am very unhappy with these results. The Dr. informed me that alot of digging was required to remove the old device...which they eventually could not find in the ear and just attached the new one.
I had no pain, little vertigo and very little nausea. So....anyone have this problem and if so does the hearing eventually come back
Thanks Stap x2
