Hi.  I'm new in this Usenet Newsgroup.  I just moved to Massachusetts near
Boston from Texas (moved on July 1st).  I am looking for a place where the
best doctors are for hearing.  I just had a hearing test done this year of
May and was told by the audiology that my right ear is capable of having
ear surgery because it has a mixed loss.  I'm shocked because no one told
me in my childhood that there was anything to do about my right ear.  I
now wear a hearing aid in right ear for the first time this year (25 years
of missing sounds!).  I use to wear one on the left ear and quit when I
was in the 9th grade and have a lot of trouble with it.  Here is what my
audiogram looks like (cookie bite hearing):

Right (Conductive and Nerve loss):
250 & 500 @ 70dB, 1000 @ 85dB, 2000 & 4000 @ 110-115dB, 6000 @ 85dB, and  
8000 @ 75dB....but the nerve loss is suppost to look like the left ear.

Left (Nerve loss only):
250 @ 20dB, 500 @ 65dB, 1000 @ 70dB, 2000 @ 55dB, 4000 @ 45dB, 6000 @
15dB, and 8000 @ 0dB

Looks weird huh?  Most audiologist has said that this is not a very common
hearing loss...is that true?  I cross my fingers about that my right ear
can be fixed for the conductive loss and need to find a good doctor in
Boston.  I would appreciate any response.
