Battling Ear Disorders Following Sinus Lift Surgery

I was so happy that I was recovery and things got much better. But all the problems came back again last Friday when I woke up many times in the night with the fullness of ear and very bad sore throat.

I think I am now in the most difficult time in my life. After the sinus lift bone graft surgery and subsequent taking out of the graft surgery, I have been battling the ear disorders for almost 2 and half months now.

The problem with the disorder is that the fullness and discomfort of the ear keep me waking up in the night at least 2 to 3 times and sleeping is the most difficult thing for me. It made me difficult to breath and very dizzy.

I cannot rest and have no energy to do what I like to do. The only thing I am doing now is seeing doctors and try all sorts medicines they gave to me. The worst thing is that some of the so called private ENT specialist who use your consult time and sky high consult fee to advertise his own surgery method to you without showing any concern to your problems or suffering.

Just a caution for those who are going to do sinus lift surgery for dental implement. It is better to go through a reliable ENT specialist to evaluate your suitability for the surgery. If you have existing sinus or ear problem, you should be very careful going for the surgery.

I have sensitive nose all along. Normally I will sneeze and have running nose when wake up in the morning. But just a while, I am fine. I have never expect that this could be a cause for the current problem. My dental surgeon never questioned if I had any sinus problem, nor gave a proper warning of the possible consequences. She didn't even explain how she was going to do the surgery, only saying that she will put some bone under the sinus. I didn't even know the term "Sinus Lift" before the surgery. I went in for the surgery to think that it was a just very small thing to do. Only till moment the surgery was over, I sit on the surgical bed almost crying. I really felt that that was something I shouldn't do. But it was really too late.

Just as an old Chinese saying "天有不测之风云, 人有旦夕之祸福“, meaning sky has constant changing wind and cloud, human has happiness in the morning and disasters in the evening.
