Alright guys.... My hearing has significantly changed for the worse. However at loud dB I still have 52% recognition. I think I’m just a good guesser. Lol. Dr. Huang asked how my gentamicin journey has been. I told her about vertigo two days later and none since. That days 6-9 I could hardly walk. That now I can’t turn my head quickly and that I have trouble in stores or on the computer. That I lose balance quickly when doing tasks that require bending over. That long days make me feel like I might have an attack but they don’t come. I just get queasy. I said “I’m ready for the laby. Let’s just get it done!” To my surprise. She shook her head no and said there’s no need. Between my hearing decline and what I described about my experience she believes from HER experience with other patients who’ve done this protocol that we effectively did a chemical laby. That I’ve probably lost 90% function on that side and that will suffice as to stop vertigo and drop attacks and that now my focus needs to be rehab for compensation. That my imbalance and current feelings are not going to be vertigo that it simply means I have more recovering to do. I asked “what if vertigo comes back?” She said I don’t think that will happen but if it did we would confirm with the water in the ear test and then do a laby. But most likely it would be from my good ear if that happened so she’d want to be sure before doing an unnecessary laby on an already dead ear. So that’s where I’m at. I have to trust her and have faith in the gentamicin. I said “I know others who have had it and then vertigo returned later. I don’t want that.” She said that’s when people space a few injections weeks apart to save hearing. Which is not what we did. We flooded your ear daily with gentamicin for 21 days plus did a booster injection to start and essentially did a laby that way. This is much more significant than the low dose protocol. So I should trust it and get back to living. So guess that’s what I will do. Xoxoxo.
