I can only saw my perception of it is greater. I had a annoying, sometimes present buzz, but it was more pulsatile. I had a stapedectomy and now hear great in that ear. I wonder if I just hear it better after the surgery. Good luck at the doctor
It has been a year since my surgery. Today, I still have the fullness in my head as if I have constant sinus infection. If I move to fast my world spins. When I drive for more than 20 minutes my head becomes light as if I had been drinking. I still can't recognize where speech is coming from when spoken to. I can't walk up or down stairs with out having to hold onto something..trust me I've fallen down the last step at my home three times now. People get angry when they have to repeat themselves over and over again. That's even with a hearing aid in my left ear. Life for me has changed dramatically over the past year. I used to be an outgoing person who loved to be with others. Now, I prefer to be alone in my quiet world. It's embarrassing when you realize you were speaking on a discussion that had nothing to do with the topic or walking into walls or display shelves at your local WalMart. Heck I can't even have a conversation on my cell phone because I can't hear the person all that well on the other end. A surgery that was supposed to change my life for the better has created a nightmare for me. A nightmare that I will never wake up from. I have learned that sometimes you just leave well enough alone and don't get it fixed until it totally breaks down. NO more surgeries for me unless it's life threatening.
It has been a year since I've been released from my doctors care. I still have ringing in the ears and it can keep me awake at night. I try focusing my mind on other things but I can't get past the darn crickets. As for the dizziness it is always there. Can't tell you how many times I've fallen down my stairs or up my stairs. I can't drive for long periods of time because of the vibration of the car makes my head spin. I can't have the windows down in the car or the force of the air against my ear causes massive dizziness. Trying to adjust my life however, it's hard. I take elevators when all possible and day's my head fills so full I just don't even attempt going out. Do I have regrets after the surgery? Most certainly but I must learn to adapt and hope people accept my apologies when I accidentally bump into them while walking.
