This answer was rated:

After having my ears syringed a week ago, the nurse says there hardly any wax there but she couldn't get it out. So I am supposed to go back after continuing with the oil drops.
But afterward I am now deaf will this be temporary as a week has gone by and there is no sign of improvement

This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are having wax in your ear.

putting oil drops in your ears can soften ear wax and make it easier to get out, but it can also cause ear wax to expand and cause temporary hearing problems in your ear

you will hear again in your ear

but you have to get the wax and oils out of your ear

your nurse can help you with that on next visit.

your hearing will get better. this is not permanent hearing loss

I have just read your reply as I thought I had terminated the call after realising there was a charge of £24 which is ridiculous for a few words, I noticed on my pay pal account I was charged after all. Yours Mrs Blake
