#871 How my ear stole Christmas ~I had an ear problem~

One day I couldn’t hear anything

One day when I woke up in the morning, I couldn’t hear anything from my left ear and I felt some pain in my ear.
So I went to an ENT doctor. He told me that I had an infection in my middle ear and he gave me some medicines.

I had a surgical incision

Two days later, I went to another ENT doctor near my house, because I still couldn’t hear from my left ear and I could still feel the pain. Moreover my ear was ringing. The doctor O recommended to do a surgical incision into my eardrum. Nurse put some liquid anesthesia into my ear. I waited lying on the bed for 15 min until the anesthesia came into effect. The surgical incision happened really quickly and I felt some pain in the process.
Unfortunately my hearing didn’t recover.
A few days later, I heard from my friend that doctor O was not a good doctor.

I went to 3 different doctors

Since my ear’s condition didn’t improve, I went to another ENT doctor based on my friend’s recommendation. Doctor M was very popular and he cured my ear problem. I felt that my condition was getting better a little.
I went to 3 different doctors in one week, because I couldn’t hear at all from my left side, especially I had to have lessons at cram school for kids.

It has been a month since I couldn’t hear

In my case, surgical incision was not a good treatment. I think it made my condition worse.
After all I couldn’t have lessons due to my ear problem.
This happened during Christmas and now it has been a month since the morning I found out that I couldn’t hear anything.

Nothing is more important than health

During this month, I didn’t want to do anything, even reading books, checking smart phone and I didn’t want to have any communication with anyone. I was just like a “hikikomori.”

And I became to understand that how seniors who have poor hearing feel. At the same time, I found that nothing is more important than health.

Now, my ear is getting better day by day.
See, I’m posting my blog today!

耳が片方聞こえないだけで、外の音が聞こえづらいよね。
私も風邪を引いて、1か月くらい、片方の耳が聞こえなかったことがあります。
そうすると、人の声も聞こえなくて。
片耳聞こえないというのは、大変なことなんだなと思いました。
nakoさん、怠惰な生活をしていたからなんて言っているけど、そんなことないと思うよ。
だって、nakoさんは、いつもアクティブな元気印ですもの。
O先生のところに行ったのは、残念でしたね。
1週間に3人もの先生の所へ行ったのが、nakoさんが、とっても耳を心配していた様子が良く分かります。
段々良くなっているというので、ちょっと安心です。
早く聞こえるようにななるといいね。(^_-)-☆

わー、yokoさん、優しい言葉ありがとう。

塾があったから早く治さねばと思って鼓膜切開したのに
余計にしんどくなって結局他の先生に授業を代わってもらいました。
痛い上に何も聞こえず、自分の声のボリューム感がわからなかったので
とても授業どころではなかったです。

今回、内向的日々を送ることで
耳の遠い老人がコミュニケーションしたくなくなる気持ちが理解できました。
それと気軽に鼓膜切開をするものではないですね!

3週目あたりから少しずつ聞こえるようになることで、
歳を取っても人間は治癒能力があるもんだと実感しました。

今の気がかりはピリピリと鼓膜の音がすることです。
どうか完治しますように。
