My journey with the beast

Apr 10, 2016

By: Patti


I call cholesteatoma the beast because it is. I started with ear infection in 2006. Then I noticed a hearing lose.Not intll 2011 did I get to a doctor who gave a proper diagnosis. Sent to Dr. Giddings in Spokane Wa. Had surgery to remove C Toma and place fake hearing bones that were destroyed. Surgery and recovery went well, hearing much better and have been free of C Toma since 2012.
