Weird Ear Symptom After Surgery?



Recommended Posts

Did anyone else have a weird noise in their ears like tiny thuds or popcorn popping after surgery? My right ear feels really full and I hear this popping all the time. My doctor says its not an ear infection and said it must be from the anaesthesia, but that was nearly three months ago so I don't know why it would be popping up now. I was told to try a large dose of sudafed to try to dry out the Fluid in the inner ear but that hasn't worked. I'm really desperate to get this taken care of, because its starting to effect the way I hear and the sensation of the popping keeps me from sleeping at night. :(

There's a user on YouTube called gastricsleeve4me. I just watched a couple of her videos today, and she mentioned a couple of unusual issues she's had that are related to rapid weight loss. One of them was an ear issue having something to do with weight loss affecting the eustachian tubes. I'm pretty sure it was on her video titled "Gastric Sleeve 41: 15 Month Update". Hope this helps!

Maybe your PCP could refer you to an ENT for further eval? Good Luck, I can see how that would be very frustrating.

I had gastric bypass on 1/17/14. I'm also having noise in my right ear. It sounds like whoosh whoosh whoosh. It drives me crazy! I told my Dr about it at my 2 week appointment but I wasn't hearing it then. He told me to call the office and they would setup an appointment with a ENT if it started back. It started again a few days after. I go to ENT on the 25th.

I feel for you... It sucks.

I just recently started putting cotton in my ear. It helps drown the sound a little. It's hard to sleep when hearing this noise constantly at times.

Since about one week after I was sleeved my right ear sometimes feel like I have Water in it. I have tried cleaning it out, using wax removal, warm Water, but it doesn't help, it's clean. It also doesn't last all day maybe a few hours. It starts about 45 minutes after I wake up and lasts a couple of hours. I keep meaning to tell my doctor, but of course it's not happening at the time I'm there and I forget about it.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
