    Residual effects from Stapedectomy

    My wife about a year and a half ago had a stapedectomy on her right ear. Her hearing has improved to normal hearing levels. However, she has a lot of issues. Here are a few examples:
    If she tries to open a jar, she cannot. She feels a pinching pain in her neck. The pain is not in the same area. Sometimes is bellow the ear, sometimes in the back of the neck but in different places.

    While driving, when going from flat to uphill or downhill- very mild inclinations- she feels that her ears clogged like there is water in the canal. When she drives she uses a lot of chewing gum; and this helps.

    It is very hard to lift nearly any weight. She will have a pinching pain somewhere in the neck.

    These symptoms have been reduced since the surgery but they have not gone away. This week she had a meeting with the surgeon. He dismissed that all these issues are not related to her surgery and he never had a patient with these issues. He is a world class doctor and famous with hundreds if not thousands of operations.

    Does anybody have experienced similar issues?

    Many thanks
    for your replies.
