Hello I recently left hospital due to septic shock.
I have now due to the antibiotics given to me to deal with the infection total deafness on my right side accompanied by tinnitus on the same side also.
From what I have been reading on the net I am so very lucky not to have gone completely deaf on both sides due to the medication, but I am also reading that the antibiotics can still cause me to go deaf on the left side also weeks/months after the treatment.
I have an appointment with ENT consultant in 3 weeks time, but I cannot wait that long for an answer to this, I am thinking that I can at any moment still go totally deaf on my left side also, I am not sleeping etc etc
Please am I still in danger of going deaf on my other side also or was I just lucky and have the one sided deafness to deal with.
