Just wondering if there is anybody else reading this who had pneumococcal bacterial meningitis that left them deaf? If so, did you get a cochlear implant? Both ears or one ear? Any ossification of your cochleas?
I had BM 16 mos ago and was in a coma for just 2 days, but woke up deaf. I had a cochlear implant done in my right ear fairly quickly (just 3 mos after I got sick) but put off having my left ear done. Now my doc tells me that my left cochlea is 40% ossified (bacterial meningitis- the gift that keeps on giving- LOL!).
And here is a real far fetched - anybody who had cholesteatoma in their ears as a kid, then get meningitis (cholesteatoma is a known risk factor)?
Wishing you all the best!
