    Dislodged staple prosthesis after blowing nose?

    Hi there I had a stapedectomy on my right ear 3 weeks ago and I am wondering if anyone knows if you can dislodge the prosthesis from blowing your nose...
    On day 8 (post op) I completely forgot about the at home care instructions and blew my nose gently. Ever since then I've heard a crackling in my operated ear every time I swallow or yawn. It sounds like the noise a broken speaker makes, when it has a loose wire, and I am so worried I have dislodged the prosthesis. My hearing is coming back and I am not experiencing any dizziness or pain, though this loud noise is worrying me. I know it's common to sometimes experience crackling due to fluid behind the ear, but this came on straight after I blew my nose. Has anyone committed the terrible sin of blowing their nose?!? And Can you dislodge the prosthesis without losing hearing?

    How did you make out after blowing your nose? I accidentally did the same thing on day 11 and had the same symptoms. I called the dr and they told me to come in if I actually lost hearing or had any fluids leaking. Please reply and let me know how your ear healed.

    Hi there,
    It's been 4 months since I started experience the crackling and unfortunately it hasn't gone away. My hearing hasn't dropped but I still have the crackling every time I swallow. I had a CT scan to see if I have dislodged the prothesis but it showed it was still in the right position. I'm going back to my ENT this month as I am at a loss to explain what this noise is. It sounds like I am moving the prothesis in my ear every time I swallow. I'll keep you updated on what my ENT says, and please do the same!
    Thanks
