Turned out it was just an excess of wax and the overload of pus, so they use that drill thing to clean the rest of it out with warm water. Luckily, I am better and I could hear again. Yay. No more muffled sounds. No signs of a serious hearing loss, so thank goodness that's over. Sorry if it took nearly two weeks to respond, but I was feeling really miserable with a clogged ear and it turned out it was nothing serious at all. Thank goodness I could hear on the right side again. I felt like I aged 20 years, saying, "What? What? What?" for about 20 times. Now, I could hear everything on the right side. So glad it is all over. My doctor said it never affected the membrane, just the areas where the pus originated. He explained that I might I pushed too hard with my cotton swab and that might have clogged it in the ear, which was how it was first developed. A simple cotton swab. Geez, the things you know and don't know. Sometimes, it is a scary world and yet know so little of ourselves with how we take care of our bodies. Well, thank goodness I could hear. I back, everyone. Did you miss me?
