If it's farther in your ear, you might be able to hear better but it should not hurt.
If it hurts, you need to discuss this with your doctor and either have it refitted or come up with a better solution.
Let me know if you still have questions.
If you can hear better with your old hearing aid, let your doctor know and feel free to switch back.
You have to stick with what works!
If your new hearing aid is causing pain, it needs to be adjusted or refitted so that it won't.
You don't have to trade your comfort so that you can hear.
I would have to say no - It seems that if this procedure hurt you and the doctor paid no heed to you stating so, there's something wrong with the doctor. This may have caused more damage.
You might wish to check out the make/model of the hearing aid that you currently have and contact the manufacturer - more than likely you will be able to get information from them as to whether the model is still being made and, if so, ask how you can purchase another pair - or perhaps they can refer you to a doctor in your area for whom they have shipped a supply to so you can consult with them.
Or, perhaps you can find out if they have a similar model if the one you currently have is no longer being made - they should be able to assist you, accordingly - if not, please seek another doctor.
If you wish for further information, please let me know.

I am not here to compete with other specialists in which to answer your question...yet, I believe whatever response resonates with you should be the better answer.
Let me say this, I don't believe that any patient that advises their doctor that they are in pain and the doctor refuses to listen, is a qualified doctor. This is my opinion - and mine only perhaps.
Thus, of my own opinion, of my own knowledge, of reasonable logic, if you are in discomfort, if you are in pain, if you are not getting any positive response from your current doctor, it is best to seek another medical opinion. As well, the most important - the key to all of this - is to HEAR.....thus, if you can hear with the aid that you have now (concerning the model in particular) - I would have you refer to my original post above.
Naturally, logically - it's important for you to be treated by a physician concerning your condition - and I never implied otherwise.
If "you" have any questions concerning my response, please let me know - I will be happy to clarify for "you" and provide additional information.
I agree completely with oreport above, It appears to me that your questions were answered in a professional manor, and with informed knowledge due to the information that was given. If you are not getting the answers that you are looking for then maybe you need to rephrase your question so we may get a better idea of what you are looking for. We are "specialists", not mind readers, and sometimes you need to be more specific if a specific answer is what you are looking for. It is to bad you feel this way as I believe that oreport was genuinely trying to help. I would urge you to think about your question and try again.
Good Luck to you!
