I'm wondering if anyone else has any experience with the situation I'm going through?
Last October I had Cholesteatoma surgery, my incus was removed because the disease had completely eroded it away. The disease was apparently very dangerously close to my brain. I also had my eardrum rebuilt with some cartilage from my ear.
My existing eardrum perforated after the surgery and the hole never closed up. I've had to keep on using vaseline and cotton wool in the ear when showering but I keep on getting chronic ear infections. I've now got an emergency appointment tomorrow for microsuction.
I was told I'd be put on the waiting list for a second stage operation sometime towards the end of the year but I'm afraid this won't work either.
Has anyone else gone through anything like this?
