      I'm thinking maybe I should make the transatlantic trip, if I can get that many successful H patients in the same room to see if they also mean TTTS. Or did he mention elsewhere that they don't address things like tympanic flutter? Because the institute ignored me on the emails.

      On the negative side Sarasota is reportedly a scientology shithole.

      Sarasota is a very beautiful (mostly retirement) community on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. My parents live there and I've been going there for years. I never saw any scientology buildings or activity... ANYWHERE there! You might be thinking of Clearwater.

      Right that's the one, Clearwater, that was the place I read being full of them. I'm sorry, I'm sure Sarasota is a nice place apart from the probable fact that you get alligators rammed up your bum every two seconds.

      Been a while since we heard something about this. Will there be anymore studies? @japongus you wouldn't happen to know what Silverstein is up to these days?

      Only if you camp out by a canal :) Though honestly I haven't heard much about alligators there.

      Nah, the doctors from his team ignored my numerous requests for more detailed descriptions of the hyperacusis via email. I also tried to extract more detailed reports from someone on fb, an attender to Silverstein conferences who hadn't got much of a positive results from the op, but she also mostly ignored me. The doctors don't seem to care and the whole thing might die out when Silverstein retires, and they'll all probably return to their daily hustle of easy moneys from stapedotomies for 'real otology' and neuromonics for jastreboff's alice in wonderland otology. I also didn't fly over the atlantic to the conference to extract the info from the attenders because of the price of travel and the probabilities of making it there sufficiently exhausted and sleep-deprived to not concentrate enough in the 15 seconds I'd probably be given to extract said info.

      Since then it's been revealed it may be helping with the pain but not the LDLs. Which is a nail in the coffin of the jastreboffists at chat-h that were desperately scrambling when the news of the paper came out, saying it was like an ear plug.
