Hearing Loss

Postby lanemll » Mon May 23, 2016 9:05 pm

As stated before, my wife had developed pneumonia as a result of what looks like a viral infection. Cough Assist has been attained and is helping with managing fluid in lungs. We are scheduled to see you all on the 18th of July, but wanted to ask this question. Has shallow breathing, lower oxygen levels (especially during the night), affected hearing? My wife has losses a major amount of her hearing. We are hoping and praying that it will clear up (although she has had minor hearing loss before this but it has gotten much much worse). Any thoughts?

Definitely not! You have to find some other reason.
