My granddaughter has been diagnosed with 75% hearing loss in

This answer was rated:

My granddaughter has been diagnosed with 75% hearing loss in 1 ear due to nerve damage. Can anything be done privately for her ?(NHS Said they cannot help !) She jumped in to a swimming pool and was originally told there was water behind the eardrum. Now told it is nerve damage.
JA: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?
Customer: Maybe 4/5 months and no issues with colds etc recently.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No. Didn't have any problems with ears before that.

How old is she please? Were hearing aids recommended? Thanks

She is 29 but very reluctant to wear hearing aids !

Thanks for the info. Usually the first line of treatment is hearing aids and if that fails, a "cochlear implant" may also be an option. Thanks

Hi. No as my granddaughter is not with me. I just need to know if there could possibly be an alternative.

Please see my answer above. Thanks
