The "Good Stapedectomy Reports" thread closed and didn't see another. Sanguine 2011, I read your post about new issues after flying. I hope they have since resolved. I am having weird popping sounds just like right after my surgery(June 20). I am enjoying hearing low and medium sounds in my operated ear, but the high frequency sounds including understanding speech are still damaged from the surgery. I am reminded that I have a prosthetic by the new popping and whooshing sounds, very much as though I have water in my ear. I hear the sounds when I bend down or lie down. I am still waiting another month or so to make an appt. with a new doctor in the San Diego area where we have moved.
