      Hello.

      I am due to have major surgery.

      I would be grateful to know if anybody has had any experience (good or bad) of what effect the anaesthesia and painkillers had on their T?

      Thank you very much

      Noise exposure
      No effect on my T. My hyerpacusis came back though. It was very pronounced but I stayed calm and but it only lasted a couple of days. I remember when I first woke up it everything sounded weird, like a rustling wind around me but this wore off after a few minutes. No long term effects.

      Meniere's Disease
      I had surgery to both knees and walked with elbow crutches for years.
      The old made no differences to my tinnitus or the tramadol 300mg I took for years.
      Now no pain killers or sticks.....
      Onwards and upwards and hope everything goes well for you and back on your feet in no time and happy ears...lots of love glynis

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      one week after leg surgery plus hearing loss in higher freq.
      My T came seven days after a leg surgery. They put a patch behind my left ear because I told them that I feel an upset stomach from anethesia and that was the side my T started in so dont get a patch...... Dont know if my oxgen levels got to low or severe blood pressure drop through one hour surgery or the patch or perhaps the anethesia itself but I would not get the patch...Who the hell knows or maybe it was stress induced from the shock of the surgery !!

      I have had T for about 10 years, but I have had throat/sinus problems my whole life and recently decided to have a tonsillectomy and uvulectomy as an adult. I was put under for almost an hour, and I was hoping that somehow, maybe, the removal of these organs might in fact help me T somewhat- unfortunately, it did not, BUT it didn't make it worse, either- which was another concern I had deep within my subconscious. The painkillers also did not help/worsen my T.
      I wouldn't worry to much about it.
      Good luck with your surgery and your T!

      Accoustic Trauma
      I had general anesthetic during a procedure to break up a kidney stone recently.... my T was actually better than usual for a few days afterwards. Morphine had no effect on it, other than making me not care about it as much.

      I was put on liquid hydrocodone/ acetaminophen 7.5/325 if that helps at all! Made me tired and didn't worsen my T!
