Q.

Gehoorverlies

Ek hoop u kan my verwys na die regte persoon! My man speel dromme van jongs af (omtrent vir 20 jaar) en hy kla al n geruime tyd dat hy nie kan hoor as in op sy 1 oor le nie! Die ander oor makeer niks. In die laaste week is die " swak"  oor seer as hy afbuk en regop kom en kry hy n suis-geluid in die oor. Kan dit wees dat hy besig is om doof te raak in die 1 oor as gevolg van die harde klank van die dromme? En kan dit ge-suis dalk n oorinfeksie wees wat hy nou opgedoen het? Kan hulle ore " uitspuit"  wat gehoor verbeter? MOet ek n afspraak maak by n audioloog of n ENT spesialis? Baie dankie

Hi!

It is possible to have acquired a noise induced hearing loss due to previous noise exposure. However, based on the described symptoms it seems imperative that a visit to an ENT specialist is warranted without delay! A visit to an Audiologist is also recommended post ENT management.
