Hello and welcome to HCM,
First of all, i must say that i have just picked up your question because it drew my attention the very interesting way you have presented the question. I appreciate your enthusiasm and daring attitude.
Anyway, going straightly to the answer of your question, i think that you might have suffered from an ossicular disruption (most probably). Few history like nausea, tinnitus
can also direct towards inner ear
pathology. If it is an ossicular disruption then you might need an surgery and if it is merely any cochlear disruption then you might be helped from steroid
So, I think that you must do a PTA (Pure tone audiometry
) and tympanometry
. That will help revealing the cause. I personally suggest you to take help of your local doctor to get it done and for needful check ups.
Lastly, i wish you a very very early recovery and i sincerely wish that you enjoy an wonderful date as you worked hard for it.
