    stapedectomy/ossicular chain reconstruction

    My 2 cents.. this board had been very helpful with info.

    I started noticing hearing loss about 15 years ago when I couldn't hear people properly. It was never that bad and a gradual loss, but within the last year, I think I have had probably only 15-20 percent hearing left in both ears. went to the ENT in SF. They told me that I probably had Otosclerosis recommended exploratory surgery and or Stapedectomy

    On August 28, 2013 I had a Stapedectomy/ossicular chain reconstruction. I woke up from the surgery with the nurse speaking louder than normal. I told her you don't have to speak so loud now with a smile. I haven't had any of the other reported symptoms of others. first off I could hear better right after the operation. I am not suffering any pain, dizziness, taste disturbances and the ear looks fine no redness or excess bleeding. I am happy

    I have an appointment 9/5 to see the doc again, but I know I am fine I can already hear without a hearing aid.

    It turns out I was very lucky that the doctor who operated is one of the best in the world Lawrence Lustig UCSF(according to this board)

    Best to all
