Question

Guest terrysturgis

My daughter has been awarded Service Connection for mastoidectomy with tympanoplasty for cholesteatoma and otis media, left and right with a rating of 10%. I did a Forum search and seems if it's a rare claim. Has anyone had experience with the colesteatoma and can offer some advice. Thanks! Terry

Cholesteatoma is a growth (I never say tumor) in her ears caused by infection.

poolguy, she has had two surgeries on her right ear and one on her left. While on active duty at Fort Knox the Army sent her to Louisville to have tubes put in her ears.

I forgot to mention service connection for bilaterial hearing loss at 20% and 10% for tinnitus. She is being discharged for medical and it is going to be an honorable discharge. Thanks again. Terry

I am still on active duty, but the ENT doc's say I have a cholesteatoma... have had my hearing test last week (very low hearing in R ear = conductive hearing loss) and today had a CT scan. See the surgical doc in 3 weeks for the formal diagnosis, but today they said it would probably be surgery to correct. Hopefully it will help the ringing in my ears too! Cheers, Ray
