Can't bloody wait though.

I'm VERY jealous. grin

It's going to be great.

They've been driving me mad for years, but for the last month I've been more or less completely deaf in one ear.

I'm expecting great big lumps of wax things.

Ooh lucky you. I've had that done 3 times and it feels soooo good.

Your thread title did funny things to me.

Hoovered ears... One can dream.

YvaineStormhold Wed 13-Apr-16 19:35:37

Ooh does it??

It's my first time so I'm not sure what to expect - other than it's going to be brilliant.

Will the man think I'm weird if I take a pic of the wax?

I may or may not have been watching ear-hoovering videos on Youtube blush

Just in the interests of preparation, you understand.

So, how does it feel to have your stereo sound back? Did it reach the parts others cannot reach?

Is this the same thing as syringing?

CakeNinja Thu 14-Apr-16 20:53:37

Well? Well? Where are the pictures? Come on, come on... Rubs thighs...
I mean, er, how did it go? grin

It hurts doesn't it? Does it? I'd LOVE to but I'm scared it hurts!

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Thu 14-Apr-16 20:54:14

I had it done once. To be honest I find normal syringing more satisfying than suction. Was still good though.

I'm well jel envy

Just so you know OP - afterwards... EVERYTHING IS REALLY FUCKING LOUD!

YvaineStormhold Thu 14-Apr-16 21:02:16


I got the full gamut of experience. Left ear - my 'good' ear was rammed with solid wax, but he was able to get it out with the suction thingy, after a bit of softening with water.

It sucked and sucked, then there was a sensation like a plaster being ripped off and - bam! The left side of the world was loud!

He showed me what he retrieved - a black plug of solid wax, basically the size of well, an ear plug.

It was amazing. But nothing compared to the right side...

Ooh what was on the right side? What? What?

CakeNinja Thu 14-Apr-16 21:06:08

Yes but what did it look like???
<frustrated hand wringing>

YvaineStormhold Thu 14-Apr-16 21:14:51

Well, he had a look at the right side, and it all went a bit quiet.

Then he said, "Oh. I don't think we're going to be able to use the suction on this."

I may or may not have said, "I don't care if you have to send a terrier down there, just sort it out."

He replied,

"We normally use a mole, but he's at another practice today."

The comments were jovial, but the mood was grim...
