Hello and welcome to HCM,
I empathize with your problem of hearing loss
and your suffering because of them.
If your hearing aids
are not helping you listen then you either need to upgrade them or get them serviced or even change the batteries as a properly placed hearing aid should definitely help you listen.
Nevertheless when you have a cold
, or wax or when your nerves start to become weak also you may not get much relief from hearing aids. In this case you must consult an ENT and get an audiometry
If you have a mixed hearing loss with good air bone gap (this can be diagnosed by an ENT), then your hearing can be salvaged by surgery. You need to consult an ENT in your area in general or government hospitals where it can be done at your nominal rate. It is covered by insurance also. You can ask me for the details where such surgeries are performed
Do not get frustrated or depressed. Hearing loss is can be treated so do not worry
