Re: Over one month after stapedectomy - hearing is deteriorating

So sorry to hear what has happened to your husbands hearing. I have had one stapedectomy with great results and I am getting the other ear done on Tuesday. I was really worried about flying after op but was reassured by surgeon it is ok after 6 weeks. I have been told by two different surgeons to only fly after 6 weeks but I know some other posts have indicated flying sooner is ok.
Has your husband had hearing test yet? Sometimes it is hard to judge how the hearing is going because you may get used to better results immediately. The ear has a bit of healing to do.
If you are still having problems I would go back to the surgeon or get a 2nd opinion. Don't be afraid to do this sooner rather than later.
I have my fingers crossed for you and hope you post now with great results!
