I've had at least 3 mastoidectomies, 4 tympaniplasties, the ossicles in my right ear are gone, and I wear a BAHA. 2 weeks ago I met my newest Specialist, who told me that a combination of tiny ear canal and where the drainage sits in my mastoid cavity they are cleaning "blind". He gave me two surgical options: canal enlargement--so they can keep cleaning the drainage on a regular basis OR mastoid obliteration.
Looking for experiences of either or both. I live in Canada, and my wait time for either one is about the same, 12-18 months from the time a decision is made.
Thanks in advance.
