So, around 6 years ago I was told I had a cholesteatoma quite deep inside my left ear.
I underwent 3 operations, the first was to look at the severity of it, the second was to remove it and to reconstruct one of the bones that had been eaten away and the third was a double check to make sure it was gone.
But 6 years have passed now and I get quite a lot of pain inside my ear after sleeping on it or going underwater.
Everytime I go to the GP they take a look and tell me that it's a build up of wax that's causing the issue.. I have a very large collection of ear drops in the medicine cupboard 😂
Does anybody know if it's possible that the cholesteatoma has come back?
Or is the discomfort just a side effect of the surgery and is something that I'll just have to deal with forever?
