    Red face Stapedectomy

    I had a Stapedectomy performed in my left ear about 1 1/2 years ago by the "best" surgeon in Houston. I was told there was less than 1 percent chance of anything going wrong & was literally laughed at for asking that question. The surgery was a failure. My hearing is much worse. I have been so upset & decided to never return to this doctor. Does anyone have a better experience with this type of surgery in the Houston, Tx area? Thank u!

    Re: Stapedectomy

    Hi...I had 2 stapedectomy's on same ear in the 90's by THE BEST in my state...the 1st one failed & for 6 months it was pure torture as every sound including my voice created a vibration across my face. The 2nd surgery I heard dr say to team it had been a defective item & to send it back although once back at my hosp room he told me that the hole just needed to be enlarged...since then hearing is better than it had been yet I am 100% of time stuffy ear & nose.
