Ear Buzzing After Trigeminal Neuralgia Surgery?
I want to ask, post-operative trigeminal neuralgia my mother can not hear. After a while my mother began to hear a voice but hum, besides that when hearing sounds such as drops of water, the sound of birds or animals and firecrackers said the ear hurts like a head would burst. But to hear the voices of people conversing is not clear. I wonder how?
