I am 70 years of age with CSS and have become partially deaf over the last 3 months. Following tests at the ENT department the cause has been diagnosed as excessive fluid in my ears. I have had temporary hearing loss, associated with infections, over the past few years but not for this length of time before. I continually have blocked sinuses, exasperated by a polyp in one nostril, and believe this is the cause of the ear infections and main contributary factor for the excessive fluid.
Insertion of grommetts has been advised but while waiting for an appointment I would like to know if other adults with vasculitis/CSS have had this treatment with any success, particularly over the long-term?
