Brief Answer:
Granular myringitis does not need surgery

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Granular myringitis does not need surgery and can be managed with antibiotic steroid drops and oral antibiotics alone.

Only if you have a hole in your ear drum then surgery may be required.

Please discuss this with your doctor

Take care!!

He did mention that there was also a hole in the eardrum. Does that need surgery and how complicated is it. Also can it be finished within 10 days including followup inspection.

Brief Answer:
yes a hole needs surgery

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Yes, a hole in the ear drum needs surgery. If the hole is small, then the surgery can be done fast and a follow up can be done in 10 days. However if the hole is large then a longer follow up for 3 to 6 weeks is required. Please discuss this with your doctor.


Thanks

Brief Answer:
yes it can be treated later

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Yes it can be treated later, but please remember that there is chance for the infection to keep recurring because of the hole and can lead to some hearing loss.

You will need rest for 2-3 weeks , so you should plan accordingly!

Take care!

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

In November I was diagnosed with Sudden Sensory Neural Hearing Loss in my L ear, which included dizziness and bizarre tinnitis symptoms. I had oral steroid treamtent with no success. I had a procedure to place steroids into the inner ear with significant improvement in hearing, though still impaired. this was followed by continued ear pressure, terrible tinnitis, off and on headaches and fatigue. i was treated with antibiotics for 20 days and things improved, but ear fullness and lesser tinnitis persisted, with intermittent headaches and fatigue now returning. Hearing loss is still annoying, I can't use a phone on my L side and can't hear speech in a room with more than one person in it. Will this ever improve? Is there anything further that can be done?
