heriditary hearing problems
My mother and i have calcium growths in our ears. She had a surgery where they cut her ear canal and placed a metal piece between the area they cut. She sneezed and the metal came loose and she was deaf again. I would like to know if they have a way of getting rid of the calcium without damaging my ear?

Hi Terri!

It is imperative to visit an Ear Nose and Throat {ENT} specialist to help advise you accordingly upon appropriate consultation. Your mom could visit an Audiologist who would work in conjunction with an ENT specialist to try and assist her further.

Kind regards,
