When I was 10 years old, I swam underwater a lot in a swimming pool. I developed a painful earache. Unfortunately my parents believed it would go away with warm compresses. It did not and a few days later I lost hearing in my left ear.
My parents brought me to my allergist first?? and then to an audiologist. All I remember is someone saying that my auditory nerve was probably damaged.
It has been 27 years, does anyone know of anything more I could do now? Any technology that could help. It is very difficult in crowded situations with a lot of background noise to follow conversations.
