Thanks Syl. I'm just hoping it's not a negative sign for my long term hearing. Right now my hearing is better than it was right after surgery, but I still have periodic hissing, clogged feelings, squeaking, and high pitched tinnitus that varies in intensity and duration from day to day along with the level and quality of my hearing. The hearing has improved as those symptoms have diminished. The high pitch was the only thing I had pre-op. I am happy the long term trend with that has been favorable, but I still worry all the noises etc... won't get any better because they can make it rough to get to sleep sometimes. I keep a fan on at night to create some white noise.
