Thumbs up Stapedectomy next May 3er in Argentina

Hi all !! First of all I truly thank all of you because you encourage me to make my mind up , search for the proper professional and decide a certain date to op. Im very anxious but trying to spend this few days as relaxed as possible.
My doctors said that ill improve my hearing but only al the limit to close my gap and ill must continue using hearing aids but... the othoesclerosis will not grow so fast
I am 49 years old and live in Buenos Aires ( tangos capital )
Hoping to hear your good experiences !
A lot of thanks !!
Martin

Re: Stapedectomy next May 3er in Argentina

Hello Tinchito

I've had a stapedectomy on one ear. I had my hearing test on Friday and the operation reducted my hearing loss in that ear from 40% social hearing loss to 4% social hearing loss. The bone-air conduction gap was closed compared to the results before the operation with it actually getting slightly better than those results in the 2kHz range. I am very happy with this result and so is the surgeon. I have had no bad experiences since the operation, just the usual slight sound distortion after the packing came out. This went away quite quickly and now everything sounds normal.

I would recommend you having this operation done, even if you still have to wear hearing aids. You probably won't be quite so dependent on them and they won't have to amplify the sound so much.

All the best

Clare

Re: Stapedectomy next May 3er in Argentina

Good Luck Martin...

I have had stapedectomies in both my ears and I am so happy that I did... My first was back in 1992 and I just had my most recent this past February with amazing results. I think that you will not be disappointed with going forward with this surgery...
I have had two revisions on my right ear and my hearing is so much better since my last surgery was performed last June on that ear. My incus eroded causing my piston to dislocate and my first revision did not give me the best results due to an artery and scar tissue in that area.. I had to wear a hearing aid in my left ear and after the second revision I did not. At the time I had under 30% hearing in my left ear..

This past Feb. I went in again to try it on my left ear which I had poor hearing in and I am soo happy that I did because it was a complete success... I am 10 weeks post ap and my hearing gets better each day...It takes your brain some time to adjust and for me not hearing out of that ear for about 20 years took abit of adjusting thats for sure

Re: Stapedectomy next May 3er in Argentina

Hello Cindy
Thanks for your support !
Im sorry about your complication but im happy that finally all works OK and you do not need to use a hearing aid again!
What you told about brain adjustment is very interesting and I think this way works. Im waiting to feel the same soon.
Id been reading this forums posts about 3 o 4 months ago and its very nice to met people, many times many miles away, with common problems that help each other with information, tips, answers and motivation.
All your information and details are very useful for me to maintain my ops plan.
Please, all of you, excuse my bad english and thanks!, you help me A LOT to avoid fears and doubts.
Thanks !!!
Martin
