I am 22 and was told I have cholesteatoma yesterday. Even after getting recurrent infections in my right ear once every year for the last 6 years I did not think a condition of this nature would exist. So it came as a major shock to me! I know it is rare but if not treated can cause many complications. I am really worried how my hearing would be after the tympanomastoidectomy with removal of ossicles/hearing bones as at the moment I have only slight loss at high frequency. Is it a definite hearing aid will be needed after? is the hearing loss mild/severe? Is there anyone who has not needed a hearing aid?
Anything will be much appreciated! Thank you
