Hi Vanae - so sorry you're having this trouble, especially the hearing loss. So many doctor's really don't examine like they should, anymore. I worked for a family practice in the 80's and in those days, everyone had to put on a gown and the doctor actually examined his patients. I hope the surgeries go well and help you to feel better. Please keep us posted and take care!
