Semi-OT: My "toob" was removed today!!!
Well- the ENT removed my little drain today. For the next 2 wks, I am not allowed to blow my nose, or "pop" my ears in any way shape or form. He put a paper-patch over the hole (secured with ointment) to help it heal up. Removal wasn't as bad as insertion, and I didn't pass out this time. Bass range is already improved, but the patch muffles everything along with the stress from the procedure earlier today. My tympanic membrane is on the mend!!! FINALLY!!!! I'm glad it's out, and I wouldn't do it again unless *extremely imperative* that I do so. I should be healed well and ready for InDIYana.
Thanks for all of your concern in the past,
Congrats, Wolf - That's Good News *NM*
My Dr. wanted to put tubes in my ears when I had a bad infection, recently. I let him know that I was an audiophile and a classically trained musician, and that there would be dire consequences if my hearing was damaged. So, he suggested a drug regimen to "dry it out" and some antibiotics. It was like resurfacing from a deep dive the day it was all finally cleared out. Glad to *hear* it's all working out for you.
Great news, glad you're ok! *NM*
It wasn't an infection....
...so it was under different circumstances. I had this "pressure" inside my right ear, and that was the next step to try. I had an MRI, with nothing to show as a cause. I had steroids, which cleared it up, but I don't want to remain on those forever. They had not a reason for the feeling I was getting, so the "toob of dread" was the next step. I'm hoping the year-plus I had it, that the problem cleared itself up, but time will tell.
Thanks for the concern,
Get well soon, Wolf! *NM*
Thanks, All! *NM*
Re: It wasn't an infection....
Wow! That's much worse! I'm really sorry you had to go through that! A whole year!?!?!? Looks like I only got a smidgen of that with my infection. Props to you for putting up with that! I hope things continue to improve. Sounds like you have it under control, tho'.

I guess that's how long they normally take to fall out on their own. Mine didn't, and had to be removed. I hope the "problem" is now gone, but I won't know for a couple weeks.
What really stunk about the whole thing, is that I am just now hearing the past year's projects in their final status. I had to voice them with the tube in the right ear, and bass response falling off. The Mn-14 has better bass now than it did with the tube in place. And I thought it was good before! =-) I have yet to reaudition the Icthus and Scandivifia projects. It was a long arduous year for sound in my neck of the woods,
