It's a difficult decision. As an audiologist in practice for over 25
years, here is the typical sequence I have encountered:  Patient has
stapedectomy/Patient has difficult post-op period/Patient recovers and
hears much better (usually)/Patient slowly redevelops hearing loss and is
back to square one in 5 to 10 years/Patient decides to go with
amplification.

I have seen some nice outcomes and heard from some people that the surgery
was worthwhile for a few good years of hearing. Those who elect
amplification are pretty happy--conductive hearing losses tend to thrive
on volume and they are among the most successful users of amplification.
