   Do you have a hearing loss?

   Seems Dr. could have tried an antibiotic before considering surgery so quickly.

   What kind of an operation, and where in the ear?

Hi Raj,

Why did they say you needed it in your right ear? What did the audiogram show?

Because hole in the right ear is bigger than left ear. The audiogram shows moderate hearing loss in the right ear.
