      Hi

      I have been diagnosed with cholesteatoma in both ears 8 wks ago i had my first operation on my right ear.
      Ive always had tinnitus since i was quite young so i have grown up with it but since having the surgery i have been having bouts of tinnitus that seem to make my head vibrate and when i speak it sounds distorted and when people talk to me it sounds distorted.

      has anyone experienced this?

      Hello Penny,

      I really feel for you, please stay strong. I imagine you had your opearation very recently. Middle ear is very delicate so perhaps give it some more time to heal up? From my own experience I can tell you that tympanotomy (puncturing the eardrum) can take weeks to heal up too. Best of luck to you

      Thanks fish

      yeah its true, it does need to heal and my operation was only 8 wks ago but its something i dont like and i hope theres nothing wrong as i havent had my post op check yet so hopefully its something thats down to the op but it does worry me to be honest..

      :)
