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 haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
