Hello there. Does having a stapedotomy/stapedectomy means a person cannot jog, run, exercise, jump, specially do swimming, tilt his head up and down, left and right, etc. forever?

Or after certain recovery time, all these activities can be performed?

Thank you.

Hello Doctor, I have been diagnosed with the same condition and have been advised to get stapedotomy done. Since I work out a lot and do a lot of physical sports like running, weight lifting and some jumping, can I continue this after the resting period (say 2 months) after the surgery. Also I do not play football or any similar contact sports. Thank you in advance.

Hi, I had a stapedectomy in my right ear, probably 52 years ago.They replaced the stapes bone with a stainless steel wire. Didn t help much. I then had it done on the other ear about about 16 years ago. they used a plastic tube after the stapes bone was removed. Was hoping the plastic might work better. It helped a little for awhile. I m wondering if there might be a new procedure that might help. I wear two digital hearing aids.& struggle to understand words even with those. I am 80 yrs young & have worn aids since I was 28. It seems to be a hereditary condition.

Hello, I had my left ear stapedectomy surgery just two days ago on February 7th 2013. My doctor gave me local anesthesia . Right after the surgery I started hearing heart beating sound in my operated ear. Before the operation I never heard a heart beating sound in any of my ears. I want to ask you, is it normal to hear a heart beating sound in the operated ear? I had my right ear stapedectomy surgery exactly one year ago. I did not hear a heart beating sound after the operation of my right ear. Now I can hear very, very well with my right ear. I will visit my doctor on February 18th 2013 to have removed the packing of my left ear. Thank you.
