Please help! Did anyone have a very clogged ear after radiation to the head & neck from fluid build-up? I have already had a tube surgically inserted, but it has not helped me hear any better. How long before some improvement? I have been through with radiation for over 3 months now. None of my doctors seem to know, or they just aren't giving my a straight answer. Any answers would be GREATLY appreciated.

My husband had a tube placed in one ear last week (his radiation took place November 2003-January 2004). There was an immediate improvement, however there was also permanent damage from radiation. Hearing aids were fitted the day after the t-tube surgery. They work great and his attitude has improved along with his hearing.
