    Unhappy stapedectomy in 1983

    ive always considered my stapedectomy on my right ear in 1983 to be successful.....however, in the last 6-8 months or so ive noticed a significant loss of hearing as well as tenderness inside the ear if i actually try to touch it....this hearing loss has become MUCH WORSE in the last 4 weeks or so....feel like im living with about 80% loss.....much silence.
    my question: ive been told they now use titanium or some other type of metal in the ear, instead of curious if thats due to copper corroding? idk where to go or how to deal with this im very frightened....any advice appreciated tyvm

    Hi did you get/find resolution? I had 2 stapedectomy's done in the 90's on same ear...I asked for titanium and they said they only used stainless steel.
