Hearing

Following the surgery to remove my tumour I was left with conductive hearing loss in my right ear. This means that the inner ear is still working but there is no way for the sound waves to reach it. My surgery had removed most of my ear canal and the surrounding bone and left me with a large cavity that was sealed off from the inner ear. It was a small price to pay for removing the tumour but it did mean that I was hearing impaired.
