Ear Irrigation

Yep, had that done today! Although painful, I feel like a normal person who can hear. I definately hear better. This will help me with my sinus problems since in some cases removing old impacted wax makes a difference.
The peroxide bucket (after ear irrigation) was disgusting and I recommend this procedure to anyone! It feels great now that I am done...

Tip!
I was told today by Dr. Stark (Baylor Medical in Heath, TX) that use of QTips is actually dangerous because it creates an impaction. Instead, use a wash cloth and only clean around the ear, do not stick it in your ear drum. Also, putting 1 or 2 drops of either baby oil or olive oil once a month is very helpful because it will keep your wax from hardening and it will flow out of your ear naturally.

Although this is disgusting, I wanted to share this with you especially if I can change someone from using QTips and being in the position that i was....My ears no longer itch or hurt...I am a new person!

Did you finger get better? I'm glad the ear thing went well. Q-Tips should be banned!
