Last week went to the VA ENT clinic to get my ears looked at. They put hearing aids on me several years ago, but hearing became almost non-existent for the last few months. To make a long story short, I needed a good cleaning. Nurse started washing and digging, sucking and pulling and after about an hour, I was hearing better than I have in ten years. I can actually hear without the aids!!! Ringing in my ears has decreased almost half, she said it would never go away. Never had a good cleaning like I got, she said they were really packed up. I told her after 72 years I can only imagine. Now have an appointment every 6 months for cleaning.....

I have intermittent issues with the same thing. Nothing feels better than to have all that yuk washed out!

I've never had my ears de-waxed at the VA, but I just wanna say, I've always gotten consistently good care at any VA facility. I do remember getting them cleaned at a civilian facility a long time ago. I remember the procedure was quite painful, and I was concerned they were going to bust an eardrum. That being he case, I never had another cleaning.

I use dental floss.
Push it through so it comes out the other side, and pull back and forth.

Use the real thick stuff with barbs to make sure that you get it all.

Consult with your dentist to determine what type of floss is best for you; not all gums/teeth are identical!
