I had two PLF repairs with Dr. Gerard Gianoli, MD for my left ear and for my right ear. Per comprehensive testing at Ear and Balance Institute in Covington, I showed up “positive” for a fistula in both ears.
I had a patch placed and followed the PLF protocol. That being said, nothing has changed for me, dizziness did not resolve.
Extreme ringing with shifting tones, feeling extreme light headed, ear pressure all added to my plight after the surgery.
I saw a different physician after surgical repairs and he disagreed with accuracy of diagnosis and necessity for repairs resulting in more medical troubles.
