So I gladly put my hearing aid in my ear today after two days of healing, and was disappointed when my hearing still wasn’t as good as I remembered it to be. Of course it’s the weekend, and I can’t reach my ENT or hearing-aid acoustician *deep sigh*.
So next week I will first
1.) pay my hearing-aid acoustician a visit, to find out ifa) my hearing aid is working properly,
b) earwax was pushed into the hearing aid, and
c) the hearing aid still fits my ear canal (the ear changes its shape even in adults).
When everything is alright as the hearing aid is concerned, I will return to
2.) the ENT specialist to check
a) if the inflammation has healed completely,
b) if my hearing got worse. An audiogram takes maybe 15 minutes and can easily be compared with earlier tests.
So far, so good. But I have to admit I feel frustrated, because I really thought everything would be back to normal today.
