I just received a diagnosis of large Cholesteatoma in the right ear. I have had bad ear infections off and on for years. Also, issues with balance for many years. The hearing test confirms total hearing loss in right ear. Some high-frequency hearing loss in left ear. I will be getting additional MRI and a CT Scan to confirm the scope of the damage with surgery to follow. Per the specialist not only will I not regain any of my hearing but I will lose all vestibular /balance function in my right ear. They will essentially seal up my right ear after surgery.
Has anyone else out there been through such a complete loss of function in an ear after having a Cholesteatoma surgically removed? Any other advice also welcome.
