Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Was the hearing loss 80% prior to surgery?
No minimal loss according to two different audiologists weeks before surgery. now i am almost completely deaf except for lower frequencies. hoping i'll get some hearing back as it heals.
Okay, so the hearing loss occurred after the surgery?
left ear that is. right ear still fine. yes, after surgery
Okay, then there is a strong possibility that your hearing will improve over the next few weeks
god i hope so. i'n not real confident though. didn't expect this much loss. my doctor took my ear bones out and cleaned them before reinserting. he also said he rebuilt the anvil which i guess is analogous to the ear drum.
Well I wish you all the best in your recovery
