    The worst retracted drum my ent says he has ever seen.

    Hello, I have a hx of cholesteatoma x's 2 in Rt ear. I went without ent consult for 3-4 years and finally got in to see my ent. My drum is severely retracted. No visible presence of cholesteatoma, no infection. Extremely dimensioned hearing in affected ear. My Dr. Says he is not sure how too repair this severe of a retraction. I have photos and I also compared them with photos of retraction on Google and I myself cannot find any drum as severe as mine. I'm skeptical at best, to letting my ent perform surgery on it due to his lack of knowledge about what to do. He is a great doctor but this is my ear. I also get severe migraines 3-4 times a week on this same side. Along with optical migraines. Is there a doctor that can fix my ear???!!!!
