    Question stapes fracture - 2 stapedectomies :-(

    I'm a senior citizen. After a bad fall in May 2004, I discovered a fractured stapes, Hearing in that ear, formely fine, decreased c. 50%. First Stapedectomy, under gen. anesthaesia, slipped off hook of malleus bone after 3 weeks. Stape.redone, under local anesth. This time the standard Robinson titanium prothesis was wrong size, so Doc. used new one w. which he had had little experience. No choice since I was lying on op. table w. ear cut open.

    The 2nd procedure was total flop and Dr. admitted that now he has done hundreds w. new prothesis, feels more confident and suggests a 3d surgery. No side effects from previous surgeries; I have a hearing aid for conductive hearing loss; only moderately useful. Beeps and squawks. I am often the extra instrument at a concert. Good ear is very good. Any advice?
