Sudden Hearing Loss
« on: October 04, 2021, 04:29:46 pm »
I have single sided hearing following my tumor removal 5 years ago. I woke up 10 days ago with sudden hearing loss in my good ear. Extreme tone changes to music, particularly distorted bass sounding like a blown speaker. The ENT doctor placed me on 8 day cycle of prednisone.  The hearing came back after 6 days. Has anyone else experienced this frightening problem?  I post this primarily to inform.  The ENT said its critical to get on the prednisone immediately to prevent permanent hearing loss. If it happens to you, get to the doctor as soon as possible. 
February 2016- 4.6 cm removed at Sloan Kettering NY by Dr. Gutin and Dr. Selesnick.  Residual left behind to preserve the facial nerve. Two year MRI indicates a shrinking of the residual. Three year MRI indicates no change in size.
