sudden hearing loss

My husband had a sudden hearing loss 3 months ago-woke up fine, pressure and ringing, attack of vertigo, then lost hearing in left ear. Saw an ENT and went on the steroids-also had steroid injections later. He has regained some hearing as originally was off the charts. However, it's not really useable hearing. I was just wondering if anyone who has had this experiences good days and bad as far as light-headedness.  He can go weeks feeling good and then have a dizzy day. Is this normal? Dr. said it could take months for that to subside and it has progressively gotten better. Thanks!
