A few posts recently have been about microsuction and its benefits or drawbacks. Here’s my take.
I always used to have wax buildups and was treated at gps surgery every couple of years with syringing. Then the nurses were reluctant to perform this procedure unless the ear was totally blocked. And then it took several weeks to even have an appointment to see whether they would or wouldn’t, then then more weeks till it was done ..... in the meantime deafness with increased tinnitus. Then I had microsuction on the NHS which, though painful (there was blood as well as wax and it had all hardened and stuck to the ear) was successful and reduced the T as well.
So I counted up my pennies and for just £150 had both ears microsuctioned - phew much better. Fourteen months later I needed it again in just one ear so for a mere £80, I think, it was done again.
Every time, I’ve had relief from T (which I’ve probably had since childhood). The only time that T becomes a problem is when I think about it, which might not be for weeks at a time. Unless I’m posting here!
So, has anyone else had positive experiences of microsuction.?
