Left ear myringotomy issues
Fun1313 posted:
One month ago I had sinus surgery and a left ear myringotomy. Since the surgery, my ear left ear feels like I have my finger in it. There is airflow, so I know that the tube is clear but it feels clogged, my voice reverberates in my head (like with a bad head cold) and if I lay on my right side, I feel wooshing in sync with my heartbeat. If I swallow hard, it's a little like rice krispies.

My doc wanted to talk about hearing loss solutions but there's no change to my baseline hearing from before the surgery based on before/after hearing tests.

This is driving me crazy!!! Does anyone have any advice? Am I just supposed to live with this?

It's more annoying now than it was when it used to get clogged flying and swimming. Because it's everyday.
