MIND YOUR EAR WAX




I've gone deaf in my left ear a few times in the last few months.   HERE

I went to the doctor to see if I could get a referral to a specialist but apparently this can only happen after a visit to an audiology clinic. I went to an audiology clinic who told me that I had to get my ears syringed and checked for wax first. I said "OK let's do that". They said that they don't do that and I'd have to go to an ear clinic. I did that today and had my ears cleaned of wax. My left ear had a big chunk of wax that had been almost totally blocking the ear canal. Now that it's removed I can hear again quite clearly.

I've had that problem from a child.
The solution is to clean your ear gently with a cotton bud everyday.
Just do not poke it in too far and perforate the ear drum!

Why did that child give you that problem?

I've been told by experts that cotton buds are dangerous.
Proper ear treatment by microsuction is the way. The suggestion is to have it done yearly.

Children gave me that ear infection too. It cleared up as I got older. Lucky really. My oldest brother has pretty serious problems with his ears. Not good for a musician.

Robert said...

Suggestion implies belief. Surely your doctor who has spent seven years in university can say categorically if this is true or not!

Mother had wax in her ears that's why she used a match stick!

THE CURMUDGEON said...

Wax matches?

I personally believe that lighting a fire under your bottom can cure hemorrhoids. Going to try it later tonight. A bit of faith might be involved. "Thank you Brother Benedict for touching my cock, may the freedom of my bottom be unlocked."

THE CURMUDGEON said...

Yes I see where you're going there.
Some people of faith believe that, if you've eaten a bad shellfish and are feeling unwell then you should eat another bad shellfish or some spoiled meat to chase the badness away.

Sticking a hot poker up your nose is a sure fire way of sorting out bogies.

Robert said...

Did Brother Benedict ever go to jail?
Just asking.

THE CURMUDGEON said...

That makes me think of the Bre'r Rabbit story - Bre'r Benedict saying " No, no, don't send me to prison with all those big men who will want to stick things up my bum".

Richard (of RBB) said...

Brother Benedict never went to jail. He's probably sitting in Heaven now, sipping a Heaven District Chardonnay and thinking, "Hey, afterlife is not too bad."

THE CURMUDGEON said...

No, he's probably sucking on a foreskin ... sorry ... a cleanskin chardonnay.

Richard (of RBB) said...

I set that one up for you.

THE CURMUDGEON said...

No you didn't.
I read your initial comment before you changed it.

THE CURMUDGEON said...

And I read Robert's strange comment about Robinson Crusoe too that didn't get published.

BOTHERHOOD

Well Richard seemed to like my music suggestion in my previous post. I guess that means that he's open to suggestions and recomendations...
