I use a cotton ball in that ear all the time cos I don't want to catch a cold but the sound in it sometimes is so annoying and loud. I actually treat this ear as a normal ear and sleep on it also cos my dr said its fine. Does it really make a difference if you don't sleep on that side? Will it improve quicker in terms of the sound then I will definitely try it? He said only the first 48 hrs you shouldn't sleep on that side.
Thank you so much for your support. I really appreciate it! Queen
I think Cindy is right in saying that we should not sleep on this ear.My doctor here in UK said that I should not sleep on this ear for sometime.What doctors say about 48 hours which is like 'must not' sleep on this ear for this period.Similarly for wetting your ear they say you can be less careful after 21 days or 3 months but it is better to be extra careful.Sleeping on operated ear can cause some problem so early(just after 12 days).But usually after this day your hearing improves rather fast and now you will feel improvement with every passing day.And also keep it in mind,it shall surely keep improving even after that period.But be more careful than doctors.Do not blow your nose,don't lift any weights for at least some period,if you have to sneeze do that with your mouth open,do not let water in your ear even if somebody says it does not matter.Do not catch cold,be extra careful.I know you know all this but just to remind you.Again wishing you a very quick recovery and excellent hearing improvement.
