Hello,

I was diagnosed with c-toma few months back on my left ear. I had an endoscopic surgery done 2 weeks ago. Doc said that he removed a large c-toma, took the bones out, cleaned and put them back(amazing if he really did so). A few days after I was able to get back to life with some minor dizziness, balance problems. However, my hearing is very little recovered since day one. I was wondering how long it typically takes for hearing to get better after the surgery? I am 29 and really concerned.

Hi.  I was wondering how you are feeling now that it is another month since you posted.  I just found out that I have a c-toma also and will be going to the House Ear Clinic in Los Angeles, to find out what my surgical options are.  I've only heard about a canal up or a canal down surgery, not an endoscopic surgery.  What is that, so I can ask about it when I go the clinic?  Is your hearing any better yet?  Was the surgery very painful?
