Stapedectomy and tinnitus


I'm scheduled for a stapedectomy procedure on July 20. Obviously the hearing loss is a pain, but tinnitus is quite a bother, too. Did anyone else have tinnitus before the surgery? Did the surgery have any effect on the tinnitus?

Re: Stapedectomy and tinnitus

In most of the cases tinnitus is decreased less or more. Personally I had tinnitus before the operation (15/3/2011) and I still have. At least I can hear now.

Re: Stapedectomy and tinnitus

I also had the static sound in my ear very annoying to say the least... haven t really noticed it at all since the surgery but I had read sometimes you don t because you are hearing so much better..just the heart beat every now and then but I have always had this due to a rare artery running threw that area that some of us have...and of course I would be one of them... I wear a hearing aid in my other ear and I had noticed if I had it in it was not to bad with the tinnnitus...
