Hi everyone! This is an old post but I'm having now a similar situation.
Las Tuesday I got grommets placed in my left ear because I had liquids in my ears and had less hearing. The operation was with local anesthesia so I was able to hear all. Ik was quiet lot of noise .. Like a drill in my ear and a vacuum cleaner. So quiet horrible.
After the operation was able to go home... I didn't hear at all but the dog said that once the effect of the anesthesia was gone it would be OK and within few days I was going to feel better.
Of course this didn't happend. Since Tuesday I have a horrible pippppppp in my ear... And im half deaf. The sound in my ear just it is getting me crazy.
In Friday went back to the ENT as I was getting crazy and he confirmed that I have a horrible ear infection and got some ears drops.
It is already Sunday and no improvement at all. The pieppp is getting me crazy and I have a feeling like my hears are full... Just can't clear them...
Now after reading all the stories and experiences in internet I'm freaking out that the pieppp is never going to leave and that I will be deaf. Not sure which would be worse.
I had a depression last year and was getting better now... Few months that I was finally sleeping good and feeling more positive about life and now I get this... I'm getting panic attacks again... So so scare...
Does somebody has any idea if these are normal simpthoms af a grommet placing and if I would get better and pieppp would get less?
Thank you in advance all of you for reading me...
