    Question Is 57 yrs to old for stapedectomy?

    I am considering a stapedectomy in my left ear but worried that I may be getting to old for this type of surgery and will experience a much more difficult time with recovery.
    I would like to hear from others close to my age with your experiences. My other option is a bone anchored hearing aid which I really do not want to do.
    Please help with advise.

    Hi, any idea how much approximately would this type of surgery cost in the USA? I would consider traveling to the USA for this procedure as I do believe some of the best surgeons ate out there. I don't live in as big city and I am trying to find a surgeon in Vancouver or maybe in Toronto. I am covered by insurance to have it done here in Canada. I don't want to put this surgery off !much longer, not getting any younger. Teri
