Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15 People

    Yep

    I had a lot of ear infections when little and one of them destroyed my right ear.  The bones (hammer, anvil and stirrup) disintegrated and the ear drum wrapped around what was left.  In the early 80's, they took a piece of bone from my skull and made new ones and skin...

    Mostly Deaf

    I'm deaf in my right ear due to a congenital

    reoccurring cholesteatoma. I've been mostly deaf since my second surgery when I was 10. The mastoidectomy caused my doctor to have to reconstruct my ear drum as well, and arm skin doesn't work so well at hearing, haha! The hardest thing about being deaf is that people will talk...
