Acute hearing loss due to infection

I am in urgent need of advice. Right ear of  patient has been operated on the ground that infection was in the year and after operation it was told by the doctor that out of three bones, two bones has been damaged. Further, the ear drum was also changed. The tissues were taken for tuberculosis test and test for cancer. The tuberculosis test was found positive. For treatment of tuberculosis the forecox has been prescribed by the doctor and is being taken up regularly from last one week. The recovery of hearing loss is about 10 % only. It is to submit that the left ear is also infected and has hearing loss. I have some doubt which may kindly be solved at your level.
1. Whether there is any test/symptom to locate the tuberculosis and cancer in the ear before operating?
2. The patient might be suffering from the tuberculosis, whether the medicine prescribed for right ear will also work                      for left ear.
3. In case of cancer, whether operation for left year is advisable?
4. Advice on overall situation, what to do?

Sorry, this question is outside the scope of an audiologist and requires direct medical attention. If you arent' comfortable with your diagnosis, please seek a second opinion from a physician that specializes in treatment of the ear.
