Hello XXXXXXX,

Thanks for writing to us.

I went through your query, understood the problem and the ailment. The trauma to the ear might have caused the rupture of the tympanic membrane, which is a thin sheath responsible for transmission of the sound impulses. This might have disrupted the middle ear structures and might have led to hearing loss. However, before confirming this, some tests like audiometry is required to find out the cause and nature of hearing loss.

I am writing to you from India, Bangalore. Here we have many famous hospitals like M S RAMAIAH MEMORIAL HOSPITALS, COLUMBIA ASIA HOSPITALS, MANIPAL HOSPITALS, FORTIS HOSPITALS, ST.JOHNS HOSPITALS etc. All are well renowned hospitals. I am sure you will find a solution to your problem in our country.

I will be glad to have your review. Hope I have answered your query.

Thank you.

Dear XXXXXXX,

Thanks for following up.

Correction of the hearing loss depends upon the type and the intensity of the damage and the nature of the hearing loss. This can be confirmed after thorough examination and running few tests which is best dealt with by the EAR NOSE THROAT (ENT) specialists at the respectable hospitals.

Near normal restoration of hearing can be achieved by the help of hearing aids or hearing implants. The results can only be best told after examining the subject.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to assist you further if you have any more queries.
Please close this discussion if all your queries are answered.

Regards

Hi, Since past 7 months I am experiencing Tinnitus in my right ear with partial hearing loss. Though I have consulted many doctors & taken advised medication for the same (no cancer detected in Brain MRI, Audiometry Tests show almost 60% hearing loss, Complemina Retard continued for almost 3 months), yet the problem still persists. I do not feel any nausea / headache / dizzy / anything else. I wanted to know if this is curable at all and if so then what are kinds of treatments options available ? Thanks in advance. Regards, Nitin
