Re: Over one month after stapedectomy - hearing is deteriorating

I am really worried about this flying thing to the point I checked with my specialist again because I have to fly numerous times about 10 weeks after surgery. He assures me it will be ok. Maybe the flying was just a coincidence - be careful next time just in case.
I will post again as soon as I can after surgery. Getting close now!!
Hi Nickle
So I take it you did fly after your first stapedectomy and you did fine? I had a left ear stapedectomy in August of 2011, so 7 months ago. I have been traveling everywhere by car since. I know I will need to fly again so I am just looking for reassurance, not from my doctor, but from someone who had the surgery, flew and did fine. All I read about on here are stories of people who had problems with flying and lost their restored hearing. I appreciate your response and good luck with your next stapedectomy.
