I have been battling with this damn respiratory infection for almost six weeks now and while the coughing is finally abating, I am still deaf in my left ear.
Monday I went to a country doctor who said there was a build up of wax and instructed the nurse to irrigate my ears. which she did with gusto, before jettisoning me out of the surgery even though I said I still couldn’t hear.
Miffed I drove into the city after school for a consultation with my city doctor sure she would have a solution. Oh yes, she said there is a build up of fluid in both ears… just keep doing what you have been doing and it may take A COUPLE OF WEEKS to clear.
Excuse me? A couple of weeks.
Did I mention that I am a teacher? I need to be able to hear clearly.
“Oh steam up the bathroom when you are having a shower and continue taking the antihistamines, if you want… bye”
Pay at the desk.
