whooping cough and hearing loss
Wed, 05-12-2004 - 12:47am
Two years ago my son had whooping cough. 3 months later we found out he had unilateral hearing loss due to the whooping cough, he only hears at 80 decimals in his poor ear. How heart breaking. He is how ever now in grade 1 and doing great in school, we have excellent support in our shool system. They put in a sound surround system, no matter the noise he doesn't miss a thing. Has any one experienced hearing loss after a illness? thanks. Twi
