Comment on My Tympanoplasty, A Retrospective by Vicki Wilhite

I have a question. I know this post is old but hoping for a response. I just had my surgery 2 days ago. I can't chew at all on my right side. I accidentally bit down on that side and a sharp pain went to my ear. Did anyone else have this issue?

Clark, I'm sorry to know the results. So, was the tympanoplasty done again in your ear or did you just leave it as it is? eardrum in both of my ears are ruptured and was advised to undergo the procedure. Thanks and I hope you're doing fine now.

I had a tympanoplasty and mastiodectomy a week ago. I've had some crackling as well as a rare sharp pain. I'm more concerned about the incision behind my ear but as we all know, I can't see it. It's sore and I haven't removed the dressing covering it yet because the doctor said it would fall off. Has anyone had problems with the incision behind? I called the doctor but I haven't heard back yet.

Hello everyone, For years, I have suffered from pulsatile tinnitus (hearing my heartbeat). I have been told it is a vascular issue and, after every possible test, I will have further angiograms at the Pulsatile Tinnitus Clinic at UCSF in August. I recently developed a perforation in my eardrum. I am unsure why 1/2 of my eardrum was gone, other than a weak membrane from a previous rupture 21 years ago, there was no infection or trauma. It took three visits to three different doctors to determine my eardrum was gone, phew! One doctors sent me to a hearing center to get a hearing aid. I was lucky to finally get to a specialist. I ended needing a lateral tympanoplasty and an implant to replace a frozen tendon in my ear bones. The surgery went well and I am recovering. I had some pain and drainage but it is post 18 days and most of the pain is gone along with the drainage. The packing dressing is all absorbable so I don't need any removal. My hearing is faint. I do hear some very unusual sounds (popping, tinging). I feel a kind of vibrating thumbing noise when I yarn or stretch. I can hear my PT (heartbeat) but it is not as loud as usual although it was louder right after surgery. I was told this was normal as there is increased blood flow to this area. My ear is numb as well as about a quarter of my face. Part of my scalp and down my neck is numb too. I have read this is all normal so I am not worried. I have a bad taste in my mouth but my taste has alway been off so I can't tell any difference. The one thing that is driving me crazy is I have noise sensitivity. This happen right after my eardrum ruptured. I literally cannot stand loud noises or too many people talking at once. My doctor told me this is psychological. I do suffer from anxiety and losing my hearing created a huge problem. I can't tell where the sound is coming from nor can I recognize sounds. This has been my biggest issues before and now after the surgery. I do not take any drugs for anxiety but I have tried. I am sensitive to many drugs so I am passing on all drugs except my high blood pressure medication. I take pain medication as needed for joint pain. I am trying not to take any pain medication unless absolutely necessary. I have read it can cause hearing problems. UGH! I was really happy to have this surgery in hopes of a cure to my conductive hearing loss as well as a needed eardrum replacement. My doctor is well know as a skilled surgeon, Dr Cueva, Speciality Center at Kaiser San Diego. I have few restrictions and I went back to work within a week. I was given a very high success rate for this surgery but after reading this blog, I admit I am a little anxious. My next appointment is this week so I am hoping my graph is healthy. I would like to thank everyone for sharing their stories.

According to him, he was advised not to go ahead with the surgery and control the bleeding. He later put the packaging in, and kept me in the hospital overnight and released mr next day. He says nothing was touched. However, ever since, I have developed a problem where I have to constantly clear my throat nose and it seems like I just cannot do it. Dr. Says these are not related, but I m convinced that they are. He sent me to another specialist, who told me the hole in my ear is one half the size of my eardrum. No one ever said that before, they always said, you have a hole, but not that big. My hearing is way worse than before. Do you think my surgeon did make a mistake and is not letting me find out? I have no medical background to question him based on anything. It's just a gut feeling that something wasn't done right and I m being kept in the dark. Please advise.

I am not sure if this blog is still up and running. If it is, please respond. I had typanoplasty surgery about 7 months ago. In fact , it was to be operated but I was told when the surgeon tried to elevate my ear drum to separate the boney part, he couldn't do it as my ear drum is attached to the bone. My surgeon did not do any MRI or CT scan. I was told it is a day surgery that may not take more than an hour or 2 to be completed. On the day of the surgery, not only it took more than 6 hoursin the operation room, nothing was actually done or operated on. I bled heavily through my ear and a lot of effort and time was used to stop the bleeding. My surgeon says as he was elevating the ear drum ( not knowing, it is actually attached to the bone , an irregularity) blood start pouring out. He couldn't figure out where the blood is coming from, so it took him long time to consult other surgeons to stop it. According to himself

I had tympanoplasty in 2012. It was all good for 2 years but after then I'm experiencing hell. I started feeling Pain and itching in my operated left ear.Sometimes pus starts flowing out of my ear after infection, generally during cold and running nose.Now i have added one more new problem, I starts making vibrations/noise/voices using my Tongue​ around the area​ of ear inside the mouth to get relief from itching and most weirdest thing about this is I do this during sleeping also, involuntarily. I already visited number of doctors for last 5 years. They are like your ear is all good but couldn't tell about itching and voices you make.What should I do??
