Sunil's sharp earing

In July, Sunil complained of hearing problem and pain with pus discharge in his left ear, due to which he could lose the use of his ear and be affected by a facial paralysis.

His doctor at Max suggested him Tympanomastoidectomy, (say it without breathing!) and the surgery was kindly performed on 10th October by Dr.S.K Kacker, thanks to the generosity of Dr. Arvind Kacker, ENT (Ears, Nose and Throat) specialist & owner of the Delhi ENT Hospital at Jasola and of his father.
Sunil's eardrum was replaced naturally by taking a graft from his temporalis fascia and a cartilage was taken from his ear to support the damaged parts of his bones in ear.

Sunil confesses he was a little anxious and explains that: « the whole ENT Hospital medical team was fantastic, I did not feel any pain, even when they removed the stitches »

The young man can now hear, speak and live his life as any boy in their twenties!

This successful surgery is the result of a great teamwork and here is the list of the people Mr. Sunil particularly wants to express his gratefulness to:

- Basanti, TARA Big Birds’ Manager,
- Ridhima, TARA's Medical Officer
- Rakesh, TARA Big Bird & Sunil’s roommate, for taking care of him at home, giving to him all the support he needed.
- All Delhi ENT Hospital’s team

Two months after the surgery, Sunil is glowing : « This surgery made my life much easier and better ».

And what a better gift for him than to be able to hear properly the TOTS’ Christmas songs...?
