Loss of hearing from Sepsis

In December 2011, I came down with Sepsis due to a kidney stone blocking my urinary tract. I spent a month in I C U and received heavy doses of antibiotics. I am recovering slowly, but have lost about 80% of my hearing. I have seen several ear, nose and throat doctors regarding this problem. They tell me my hearing loss stems from the heavy antibiotics, and the chances of recovery are slim. I would like to hear from anyone that lost their hearing from sepsis and or antibiotics.

I have a sibling who had ear infection and got so much antibiotics fungus started growing and they had to give some purple medicine to clear it up.  Hearing loss is suspected to have resulted from this whole ordeal, while not severe like yours, significant and sad for them.
