Dear Sasa

You most defenitely need the advice of an ENT at this stage, as it would be important to decide if your hearingloss is only sensori-neural in nature, or if there is a conductive component as well. Your ENT can then decide if you only need close follow up, or if you may benefit from surgery, or if you require the imput of a cochlear implant team to advise on your future management. Most forms of hearing loss can be dealt with very effectively, and it is in your own interest to know what type of management would be most suited to your type of hearing loss.
Only then can you make an informed decision on your way forward.
A rough guideline is that you need to have the strongest aids available, and if your aided hearing is sufficient, you do not need any intervention at this stage.
