I am glad that I saw your post on the forum, I think it is going to help me. I have been suffering from Otosclerosis and need to undergo Stapedectomy surgery very soon.
Very first thing I need you is, Should I go for the surgery or not? and if yes, since you are based in Dubai and me to which doctor you would suggest me to ?
I would sincerely appreciate if you could guide me through.

After the operation my experience was same as others..vibrations, loud sound......I was hearing easily vibrations of the plates, doors etc for 10 days....two days back doctor removed the packing of the outer ear and also removed stuff from the canal. As far as I know after removing the ear packing you start hearing well....not great but atleast the same as before the surgery.....In my case I am not able to hear as same as what I was able to hear before the surgery....I had 50 DB loss before the surgery....Now am able to hear but not great ......Doctor told me to put some drops in the ear as there is some packing still in side the ear & it has to meld then my hearing will be improve....
These all things came as strange to me....Just wanted to know, Am i on the right track or not....is there any chance that it will get worst....
Requesting to all of you to suggest the way forward.....
