    Had stapedectomy, now a little worried

    Hello. I am new to this board and was wondering if you could give me some information. I had my stapedectomy done on Wednesday. It seems my hearing has gotten worse since I got home. I seem completely deaf in the operated ear, although the packing is still in it. I should still have some sound regardless, right? Has anyone experienced this? I'm getting worried.

    Hi Michelle,
    I'm sorry to see that nobody has answered you.
    Has your problem improved at all?

    I am considering having a stapedectomy done, and I have not read a whole lot of success stories on the internet, so I'm not sure what to think about this.

    Of course I have spoken with more than one specialist, but I believe they have a natural bias for surgery. It would be helpful to get the opinions of those who have had this procedure done I think.

    If anyone else can offer an opinion on this procedure, then please do.

    By now they took the packing out.
    I'm sure you're hearing is great, now.
    Is it?

    Those 2 weeks with the packing are certainly filled with anticipation and of course the packed ear is quite deaf until it is removed.
