Hi Susie, I’m going to the dr. Tomorrow to discuss getting mine removed. It’s been horrible.
I think you and I have had similar issues. I had an ear infection that wasn’t clearing up after two rounds of strong antibiotics. I lost most of my hearing in my right ear. The clogged feeling was driving me nuts so the ENT recommended putting a tube in. However, afterwards I felt no relief and there was no fluid which had him perplexed. My hearing improved a little bit but hearing myself breathe and the pressure is driving me insane. Since it wasn’t improving we did an MRI. They said it looks like mastoiditis . My next option was to have a surgery to drill a hole or something like that so I went to a new dr. The new doctor wanted me to try some different ear drops. I haven’t had any improvement. I’m becoming so depressed because nobody ever seems to improve nor does anyone seem to know why it is. Sorry for such a lengthy reply but I desperately need to know I’m not crazy and I’m not making this up.
They removed my tube. Said the tube had fallen into my middle ear and my eardrum didn’t heal around the tube like it should
