    Oh as long as its not a wasted trip. My hearing is pretty bad but the wax is usually soft. Either way it will be done this week probably :-)

    Getting your ears syringes too often can damage them so make sure they are doing it for the right reasons. I had a dr try and syringe mine when they were infected
    It hurts me a lot to get them syringes but then I have a lot of issues with my ears

    Ooo I loved it! It was so warm lol! Doesn't hurt at all

    I agree with making sure you need it doing, go to a Doctor first to see and if they say you need them syringing they should provide clove oil drops for a week first otherwise you'll get there and it'll be a wasted trip. You may think you have soft wax but it's to do with how compacted it is on your ear drum

    i had mine done a couple of months ago. I didn't have to do anything with oil beforehand - I just made an appointment, went, and they did it.

    I would be very careful, make sure it's what you need, it can and does damage your ears (I have permanent and very bad tinnitus thanks to ear syringing) so please don't take it lightly.
    The oil is actually part of the proceedure, It's mad that some surgeries syringe off the bat with no prior treatment
    Doctors shouldn't syringe your ears just because you've asked for it done.

    SOrry I sound like a cow but it is a dangerous proceedure if done wrong and for the wrong reasons

    I'm really surprised you've been able to just book without seeing a doc/nurse first. You absolutely need to do at least 5 days of drops (olive oil) before syringing too loosen the compacted wax.

    Syringing is being phased out now for a vacuum approach. I've had both done as I have terrible ear problems and the suction procedure is much better and has a better success rate than syringing.

    I would avoid the water syringing if at all possible. Have you thought of trying Hopi ear candles instead?
