    Stapedectomy - after 9 years....

    Hey Everyone....

    9 Years ago, I had a Stapedectomy in my left ear. I can thank my Mom - for this was hereditary. Unfortunately...the surgery didn't turn out as I would've thought. My hearing was better, however, I still needed to wear a hearing aide for the past 9 years. All this time, it felt like my ear needed to be popped open.

    Fast forward to about 2 weeks ago. I woke up totally deaf in my left ear. Talk about a scary situation.... I was also experiencing imbalance and my eyes were jittery.

    Got a doctor appointment immediately. Hearing tests & such. The doctor puts me on 2 weeks of Prednisone. I have a follow-up appointment on Tuesday Sept 2nd. After two days of Prednisone - my balance and eyes were better/normal but the hearing is still gone. There's a very slight increase of INPUT going into the ear but it all sounds like **** and like a crackly speaker. Not good....

    So...I fear an MRI coming on...and god knows what else.

    What have other folks experienced? What can I expect? Another surgery?

    UGH....... sorry, venting....
