I had a left ear stapedectomy around twelve yrs ago. All has been pretty much ok except for the occaisional ear infection and subsequent drum ruptures which has been the only line of relief most of the time (yes even with abx..decongestants etc...) About a month ago I had a bad ear infection...(gram neg for you medical folk) and now I have hyperacute hearing in my left ear but when the volume exceeds a normal speaking tone I get this crackling/broken speaker phenom...weird...has anyone experienced this or know anything about it? I am worried that the implant has broken....I get the sratchin head phenom from my Doc as he doesnt have much experience with this and Of course it's gonna take an act of God to have the insurance company ok a refferal to a specialist..it aint thier ear..is it? Thanks fer your time...
