My 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with cholesteatoma in March/2017. That's when the first surgery was performed. Over 3 hours -and many bones had to be removed including the support around the facial nerve. She was left unable to hear out of her right ear. We thought the 2nd surgery that followed in October would be for prosthesis. However, when the dr went in there were 2 places and one was directly wrapped around the facial nerve. She is having her 3rd surgery may 1st in a few days. The dr did not think he got it all around the facial nerve last time. As a mom I am scared but trying to reassure her it's going to be okay. She is the oldest of my 4 kids. I found this forum unable to sleep in the middle of the night. I am from Alabama.
