Stape prosthetic slippage question
I had my surgery two weeks ago and seem to be healing very well. I have only experienced mild popping and not much of that. My surgeon said to expect to hear like a "broken stereo speaker" in the upcoming weeks. So far nothing has happened. I'm not scheduled to see him again until my audiology exam in 3 months.
I'm wondering if the risk of slippage is always there or does it decrease as time goes by?? Thanks in advance.

Re: Stape prosthetic slippage question
How does one know if their prosthetic has slipped or not?

Dr. poking some camera in the ear?
What is the foolproof test to know if ones prosthetic is in it's proper placement?
