hello and welcome to health care magic,

You must understand that when the doctor says injury to the ear it does not necessarily mean a physical trauma. It could be a vascular injury in the case of sudden hearing loss. Since you already had a hearing loss the risk of sudden hearing loss is even more.
You can try a cocktail of steoids, plasma expanders, anti viral drugs and also vitamin injections to try and salvage the hearing in consultation with your ENT and wait for a month for the recovery if any.
In any case you may need to get a full physical and CT Brain and CT temporals and get back to me or any ENT with the reports

regards
