Hey all.... So I’m the newbie who posted questions about a laby. I saw the surgeon/neurotologist today and while there had two short spins and incidentally had a drop attack this morning before my appointment. When I got there I was given a hearing test and as expected my recognition is at 52% and I have moderate to severe loss in low times and now affecting the upper tones. So she agreed that a shunt probably wouldn’t do much long term for me. She had agreed to schedule me for a laby but in the interim wants me to do gent. She put a tube in my ear and gave me 40 mg today. Then tomorrow i am to instill gent drops into my ear daily for two weeks. This is to hopefully save me a laby but if not it will hopefully make my recovery afterwards better. Has anyone done gent perfusion like this? She says I will have imbalance but that will be no matter what we do. And that with as sick as I’ve been and my poor hearing that this chemical ablation is appropriate and that I’ll need some help regaining balance but it should stop all vertigo and drop attacks. Advise and encouraging stories and words would be so appreciated. As I’m terrified of how these next two weeks will be. I just can’t handle much more spinning and puking!!
