#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!
