Ihave problems with fluid around the outside of my ear making it feel puffy. MRI reports shaow i still have fluit from a previous csf leak,,, Maybe a new one or the patch didnt work. Every time there is anykind of a pressure change i end up with a headache and hearing loss drops real bad,, almost all my hearing now seems to be conductive hearing through the bone vibrations.. My problem started at Emory Hospital through a Melanoma cancer on my nose. Half my nose was removed, Reconstruction of the nose was using mos-surgery with my forehead scalp. When I came from reconstructive surgery and came conscious, I Couldn't HEAR the surgeon talking to me.. Dr Setha said it was just the medication but it wasn't and she would not look into it.She was just out of med school and was just starting up a new practice... HMMMMM bad to admit a serious mistake that early.especially for a new " Beauty Cosmetic Surgery Practice"
I started loosing memory, concentration, forget where i was, couldn't remember where i was going , hallucinations and etc. I was a Design Eng so needless to say, i couldn't safely hold down my job so I had to early retire.
Sadly i had to fall back on the VA Medical... I went to the clinic and they were setting me up with hearing aids.They did a CT scan first, Said they found heay fluid in my ear. Had to put a tub in it first ti drain the fluid to be fitted for hearing aids,,,supposed to only drain 1 day...5 days later i still had a drop of fluid every 15 seconds coming out,call them back and went back in and they looked a little farther on the CT scan and found a CSF leak in the surgical area for the reconstructive surgery.
Sadly these Drs came from Emory Hospital in Atlanta and just wanted to hee and haw about it and finally decided they had to do surgery to close the leak, I fell once in the hospital after the surgery hit my head on Bath wall... Head swole up... Dr Mattox blew it of said it would be ok,,,...
Came home and for about a month , things started getting better,,,hearing,memory all things,,, then about as quickly as it came,,,all the good went away. Another Mri showed fluid but no help offered,,, blew me off...6 mos later,,,another MRI,,, still have fluid.... blew me off again...went to my primary care for headaches,,sent me to Neurology..another MRI, show fluid..The Primary care Dr could see there was a problem and the ENT Clinic was Clearly trying to cover Emory Hospital of Atlanta's Butt. She got permission to send me to a outside nero Dr,,, I went,,, He said after hearing all ,,, he would not touch it,,, I needed a ENT Dr that did lower crainial surgery,,, put a dye in my brain to see where the fluid is leaking from,,,she was trying to get this set up in Augusta Ga Va that handles this...When the ENT VA clinic hear she was trying to help me,,, The Hospital got on to her and let her know it wasnt her posintion but the ENt's,,,, They had to complain. So now im screwed to probably die this way...I swear that a lot of drs have changed from the hypocrisies oath to a hypocrites oath... which worships money and each others butt. too tire to go on now... bad storm outside and bad headache... Im 66 yrs old and my reasoning on how to get things done is gone,,, sorry about errors ,too tired to proof read
