Today was the day I saw the ENT specialist for my left ear. I had been being bothered with hearing loss, loss of balance and residual pain following my bout with shingles. Today Dr Becker confirmed my thoughts that the ear had not healed properly. She found fluid behind the ear drum and said that that was the cause for my hearing loss and also for the residual pain. I have an appointment in a couple of weeks to have a laser pinhole made in the ear drum, so it can be suctioned out. Meanwhile I'm back on prednisone and antibiotics. There's hope ahead! I was able to get an appropriate photo for this post.
