    Could hear at first and then I couldn't...

    One week ago I had my second 'stapedectomy'. The first was a success. I thought the second was to because I could hear afterwards but not very well (the same w/the first stape but it continually improved).
    Yesterday I noticed I couldn't hear when I scratched the cotton ball or when I picked up the phone to listen to the dial tone so I called my doctor who said to come into his office. He removed the outer packing and gave me a hearing test saying that there was a 30% decline in my hearing. I thought that was a bit soon since it was only six days after the surgery. I would imagine I still have a gel pack that still hasn't dissolved so I think that could be why I can't hear so well. He's concerned that that my hearing has worsened and put me on steroids. I can hear a little better but not nearly as good as I'd like to. Has anyone had this problem but did regain their hearing?
