Day 5 Another good start to the morning. Coffee with caffeine Ear tinnitus gives the same loud cracking and popping. Ear pain is the same 2-3 out of 10. Continuing to take Tylenol and ibuprofen along with Zofran. I have a airex balance pad I’m standing on to help with balance. My father in law is a physical therapist so he is helping me. I will officially start physical therapy after my two week post op doctor appointment. I went out and walked again today, felt a little better and was able to go outside and talk with a friend for about 30 minutes. Overall I feel much better than I anticipated.
