    Stuffiness in ear after wax removal

    Hello all..I went in to get some compacted wax removed from my ears yesterday. They used a suction and then extracted the rest (two pieces covered in blood!) This isnt the first time I've had to get wax removed but this was definately the roughest session..it really hurt as they pulled the wax off the inside of my ear.

    Everything is fine hearing wise, but now at home the next day I have a sensation of fullness/stuffiness in that ear, and I can hear myself chewing louder in my own head, as if there is still something in there. My hearing is fine, it's more of a "sensation" of fullness and talking/chewing sounds louder.
    Is this due to inflammation, maybe, from the procedure?

    Thanx

    It's probably inflamed from the suction. My ENT uses a metal hook which isn't great but is better than suction or flushing it out!
