I think it’s about twenty weeks since I first advised my GP that I’m stone deaf in my right ear. I’d thought it would go away when the Bell’s palsy departs. Alas, neither have happened.
A couple of weeks back, I attended an audiologist meeting. That report seems to have got back to my specialist who has stunned me with a letter confirming my right ear is deaf as a post. I’m fairly sure I’d already mentioned this to him.
My medical treatment has involved numerous hospitals. Two in Leeds.. Yorkshire Clinic. Halifax. Huddersfield. Now a new one. The deaf man unit at Bradford Royal Infirmary. My tour of West Yorkshire medical facilities continues.
My assumption is that this will lead to a hearing aid. That said, most of my treatment assumptions have been wrong so far so I’m probably getting ahead of myself.
Frustratingly, new hospital means pay for parking. I don’t think they’ll give me a freebie if I produce my Huddersfield/Halifax cancer parking voucher for a hearing appointment in Bradford.
Maybe I should play deaf until they give up and issue a freebie out of frustration.
