Oh my ears

At long last I think I am about to be cured of the ear troubles that I have endured since early in April. I had a middle ear infection in Korea and had a strange expereince at two visits to the Korean ENT hospital. There was some improvement - but when I arrived home in Australia in June, I was at my doctor on the second day home.

I had asked for a referral to an ENT specialist, and as she couldn't "see" anything wrong, delayded it. She put me on antibiotics, which made no difference, and then sent me for a hearing test - and the audiologist advised an ENT specialist, and still my doctor hesitated in giving me the referral. Still I persisted and did see the ENT specialist - but by then I was in "remission" and it appeared as if my condition was eventually improving on its own.

But, after going to Adelaide in July - and struggling with the extreme cold there, again I had problems, so I was back at the ENT specialist.

Clearly I have a problem which he was able to identify yesterday - so I am now on some tablets. It seems it was a virus - (which is what I had suspected) and maybe after the treatment my head will not feel like it is full of laundry suds, and my hearing might improve.

As it is I have endured this condition on and off for four months! Let's hope it will soon be over.

Hello good day to you!

I’ve read your blog and find it very much interesting. Can you do me a favor? Can I ask you to post my link in your blogroll/sidebar? In return with that I’ll write an article for you which are related to your blog. In this way, we both can benefit since there would probably more visitors in your blog and mine as well.
