    Steroid injection into the ear

    My daughter had this procedure yesterday to try and recover from sudden hearing loss. She had a grommet put in also in case further shots are needed. I understand that since behind the eardrum is now full of fluid and there will be swelling, there will be muffled hearing for a while BUT how long does it last. Has anyone out there had this done. How many day until the muffled sound goes away. It is much worse than the original hering loss and is stressing me out

    It might take a week or more for the muffled sounds to resolve, depending on how the Eustachian tubes are draining and how thick the fluid is. Does she have allergies causing this? If so, an anti-histamine and Sudafed for decongestion may help, but check with Dr first to make sure it is ok.
