: I had posted few messages here some times ago.
: I had been diagnosed that I suffered from bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Could it be cured?
: The ENT specialist even refused to prescribe some medication since it had been 2 months since my hearing
: loss, and stated that medication wouldn't help me at all. And he encouraged me to stick to my hearing aids,
: which didn't help me much.
: I'm not satisfied with his prognosis, what do you think????? I really need some suggestions from you .

First, I sympathize with your situation. Second, to answer your question. Hopefully, we have reasons to be optimistic in the long run or even possibly in the near future. For instance, have you heard of the research on hair cell regeneration such as the one shown in the website shown below...

Or, there are even a couple of doctors from China that claims that their methods works to help those with a hearing loss to hear better. There may be factors as to why they aren't more well known in the United States. Such as the language barrier, the communication barrier and the long distance between the two countries. Or, there may be "politics" involved, doctors being reluctant to credit others, thinking that if they do so it'll take something away from themselves, etc.

Anyway, you may want to check out those two Chinese doctors in the websites shown below...
