Hi my name is Jackie 6 months ago i got bacterial (pneumococcal) meningitis at hospital they saw something on my mastoid bone. I have for the last 5 years had re occurring ear infections and water in my ear i have had several course off antibiotics. Was referred to ENT after the meningitis event and i am totally deaf in that ear now the doctor insisted that it wasn't my ear that caused it because ive never had discharge from my ear. This appointment was in July. Saw TIA last week and have been on antibiotics for ear infection again swab shows nothing but ear very red, she has sent GP a letter got phone call today saying she is arrange emergency ENT appointment and that i need a scan and advice please.
