    I am 45, Male ,married with a daughter. active in profession. My hearing is facing problem as I am unable to hear soft voices in meetings & discussion. Doctor has suggested to go for Stapedotomy. Another option is Hearing Aid. I am very anxious to know how much risk is there to go for Stapedotomy? Can It worsen the hearing? Instead of 45, if I wait for another 5 years, will it be same effect of Stapedotomy or surgery at that stage will not bring any result?

    I asked my doctor that same question and he said there was no risk for waiting to do the surgery.

    Re: Stapedectomy

    My daughter had her first stapedectomy when she was 14 and the other done when she 15. I also wondered if it would be best to wait until she was older but her hearing deteriorated very rapidly and her doctor recommended that she have the surgery. I think deciding to have any type of surgery is tough but I think when the benefits far out way the risks then it makes the decision easier. It was the best decision! She is now 20 and has wonderful hearing. She tells everyone who asks to have the surgery as soon as possible.
