I went too a gp over a year ago was told I had a ear infection I was put on antibiotics and ear drops for a week. Week later I went back as my ear still was block, another gp put me on another stronger antibiotics, week later I went back, and was told be my ear drum was inflamed he couldn't see right inside so, he referred me to ENT, after ENT removed polyup, didn't work , then I was told I would have a op as ear drum was deseased. I was told waiting list for op can be upto 6months, 11 months later I have a op Monday but last week I had a ear test by ENT and I've already lost 40% of my hearing in my affected ear. I was told the op won't improve my hearing just prevent more polyups, and it could get worse over time.
i feel I've been waiting way to long that if was treated sooner I wouldn't of lost quite a lot of my right ear hearing, as a ear infection was not treated quick enough I am angry to be honest as my hearing loss could of been prevented if treated right. Is this medical negligence, do you think I should seek legal advice?
