I saw the specialist last week. My wife drove me to the hospital. But the parking was a nightmare. I suggested we park in a nearby street. We did just as I’m paying for the parking. The world starts to rotate at 100mph. I’m therefore on the pavement groaning.

Somehow we walk into the hospital and we arrive just in time for the appointment with me on my hands and knees. The staff were all really nice helping me get about the department for the tests etc.

The outcome. New drug, frankly a week on that is definitely not making any difference, yesterday two massive attacks, three two days before that.

Also though I’m on the list now for an operation within the next couple of months hopefully. They’ll drill into my ear, insert some grommets and inject some long acting steroids. They state it’s been really effective for most people that have had it. For a very few it has no effect, I’m hoping I’m not on that list.

After the operation then I’ll get a hearing aid fitted to try to restore some more useful hearing on the affected side.

    Oh my gosh, I’m so so sorry to hear you’re still going through this. My heart and my prayers go out to you. I’m hopeful they’ll find what works for you.

  3. What a struggle! Keep the faith that it’ll all be okay in the end. Faith is all we’ve got to cling to, sometimes. I had to Google grommet. I thought it was Wallace’s dog.

  4. Hi Graham! I am so hoping the operation is a success. Big hugs!
    I have never heard of that before.
    All I can say is I am really sorry you have these problems.
    More Big Hugs!

    I’m so sorry. That must be so frustrating and distressing.
    I hope the operations resolves this and they can restore your hearing. That sounds like it would be a huge step up from today.
