  1. Hi I would like some advice regarding relieving ear pressure. It has been 10 days since my CI surgery on my right ear and I am getting a lot of ear pressure, it feels very full. I really want to blow my nose to help it pop but I know this is strongly advised against - so I was wondering if any of you have any information about alternative ways to help relieve the pressure? Perhaps something like exercises or manoeuvres that can help? My ear has popped a bit on its own a few times in recent days - such as when I am swallowing food or a drink - is this normal or something to be concerned about?
  2. Thank you for your advice Mary Beth and it’s very reassuring to hear that someone else has gone through a similar thing to me. How long did it take for your tinnitus to settle down post surgery before activiation? For me it’s been three days post surgery and the tinnitus and dizziness hasn’t improved at all. It’s so difficult not being able to do anything to help it. I would usually do yoga or go running to help distract me from tinnitus but that’s not an option now for the next few weeks.
  3. Hi I had my CI operation on my right side last Monday (I am profoundly Deaf in both ears) and ever since, my tinnitus in the CI ear has gotten considerably worse along with dizziness - it even sounds different and much louder. I had tinnitus before the surgery anyway but it’s scary how it has intensified. I know this is fairly common and should get better after activation - but I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to deal with it? The same ear also feels very full - probably of fluid - which I think is maybe causing the tinnitus. Is there any exercises that I can do to help my ear drain the fluids more quickly? I do practise yoga but I’m scared having my head down below so much may might make the dizziness and tinnitus much worse, I’m also tempted to give my nose a good blow to see if it helps clear my ear a bit - can I give it a go? Also a weird thing I’ve noticed after the op is that when I look up - the tinnitus gets a lot louder then settles down when I look back down. Has anyone experienced this too? It also gets louder when I lie down on my bed on the pillows - so I’m not sleeping great either. I’ll really appreciate any advice towards this - it’s definitely a very difficult time for me at the moment.
