I’ll do another quick update; though things seem to have slowed down a bit in the past couple weeks. I’m currently a few days shy of 2 months post op... I’ve been seeing a vestibular therapist almost every week. I was really diligent doing the exercises at home for the first few weeks but I have to Admit I’ve been slacking of late. Which might explain why my recovery has stalled/slowed a bit. At this point, when people ask, I feel I’m operating at about 70-80%. I get the feeling the last 20 or 30 could take a long while to regain. Or maybe after drilling out your labyrinth, this is as good as it gets. Time will tell. I’m doing almost everything I’d be doing under normal circumstances. Hiking, driving, etc. Not sure I’ll be confident to ski this upcoming season... but I’m not a super confident skier anyway. After 7 years of strict low sodium I’ve slowly gotten back to all the yummy stuff I’d been missing... pizza, Chinese, bbq, etc. I’ve also gone back to a cup of coffee or two per day. Life is grand. I will say, in the past couple weeks my tinnitus in my dead ear has gotten a lot worse. Not worse than before surgery, but as bad as it had been on it’s worst days. Not sure what to make of it. I still tolerate it — what choice do I have? Not sure what to attribute it to. My ENT husband says it’s normal post labyrinthectomy. Is it my brain missing the input now that it’s really gone? Maybe the salt or caffeine I’m indulging in. We had an interesting debate — do I still have Ménière’s at this point? Not sure how you define it. Anyway, it also could be hormone related as I’ve ditched my BCPs when I stopped diuretics — my main reason to have been taking them was my ear would go nuts otherwise. I’m hoping the tinnitus quiets eventually. I’ll get my BAHA in a few weeks! I’ve been in several social situations recently where it was really hard to hear conversations — loud dance competitions, restaurants, etc and I hope it helps. Im still a little tender around the BAHA area but not terrible. There was a section of stitches under the skin where it was knotted ends and the doc had to fix a bit but it’s feeling much better now. I think the knots were keeping it from dissOlving.
