It is unfortunate that you are unable to hear and you still have not been able to consult an ENT. Please make haste and do so immediately.
The hearing loss
can be due to a minor problem like your infection which causes accumulation of fluid inside the ear rendering hearing difficult. If this is the case then with proper treatment decided by the ENT you may regain your hearing.
But there are other more serious causes which can cause hearing loss so seek your ENT immediatly.
keep the following checklist when you meet your ENT:
1. Full examination of the ear, nose and throat
2. Full audiological evaluation including PTA and impedence
3. CT of the temporal bone
hope this helps......if possible kindly get back to me with the above reports and i can help you better
