I've had an ear infection for 4.5 months, unresponsive to 9 courses of antibiotics and topical treatments.
I had a CT scan which showed the middle ear to be full of fluid which is likely infectious fluid, considering what is still coming out (literally dripping out of my ear). Surgeon cleaned my ear for the 6th time, using suction and tried to examine for presence of Cholesteatoma but he was unable to see well enough. He has ordered a specialist Mastiod MRI scan to look for Cholesteatoma and also determine how far the infection has gone into the bone and tissue.
He highly suspects the scan will confirm Cholesteatoma. He said he's 90% sure I will need a modified radical Mastiodsectomy. I have my scan in 2 weeks and see the surgeon again around Christmas time.
Has anyone here ever had that procedure?
