Hi, thanks for your query.
I feel probably you have hearing nerve weakness because of previous infection.
Hearing loss with tinnitus suggests hearing nerve weakness.
As you have undergone 2 mastoid surgeries , there are more chances of inner ear damage either because of infection, or drugs or surgery.
If I were your treating doctor I would advise for audio me try test, detect the degree of hearing loss and nerve weakness.
If hearing loss is moderate to severe, then I would advise for hearing aid.
For tinnitus, I would suggest you to try with betahistine 16 mg tab + ginkobiloba
tablets + multivitamins for 3 weeks and see the response.
You can discuss my views with your doctor as well.
Hope my answer has helped you. Thanks.
I find this answer helpful

Last night I got slapped hard in the ear with a cupped hand and immediately heard a ringing sound and was slightly dazed. The ringing went away after a few minutes but I still have the feeling in my ear of it being underwater. It has been 16 hours roughly and there is no pain now but it hurt badly initially. It never bled or leaked fluid and does not appear swollen. Will this go away and my ear return to normal or what should i do?

Hi there, I have suffered intermittently with a very itchy left inner ear. This is usually accompanied with a dripping type sensation inside my ear or a squelching sound if I move my jaw. (There s never really any discharge but it does feel wet). This evening the itching sensation got bad and I also had some sort of hearing loss in that ear. When I was going to bed I noticed a large bit of dark brown sticky discharge. Could this be an infection?Many thanks,Sinead

I ve always had about 4 -6 ear infections every year, but this year was fine. Until my ear drum. Tho it doesn t feel like a ear infection, any idea what it could be?

From may last year started experiencing intermittent numbness, pain and pins/ needles in limbs and face mainly right sided and have now had these symptoms intermittently since!! Pulsatile tinnitus started April this year combined with drunk like feelings, had mri and mra which were clear except for dominance of left sided blood vessels been told headaches are most likely migraines and been put on beta blockers and zolmitriptan as and when required!!
