Jeff Pittman, 18

Hi, my name is Jeff Pittman and I'm the creator behind Cholesteatoma .net. I created the site after I realized there is a need on the internet for people who've had an experience with a cholesteatoma in the past or are currently in the battle. The purpose of this site is to bring together people for encouragement, for finding the best doctors, and for people to know that they are not alone. My cholesteatoma experience began when I was a junior in high school. I noticed a persistant dizzyness and pain comming from my right ear. The doctors told me it was nothing and one of them even said I was making it up. I was on IV antibiotics for two weeks before a CAT scan was finally done and the c-toma was discovered. My advice to anyone who in the battle right now is to be very upfront and find a surgeon who has performed many c-toma operations. My hope is that though this website people can share information and become more informed and encouraged! I encourage everyone who has had an experience with c-toma to post their experience so that others may be encouraged! Thank you all for contributing and check back often as I will be updating the site as more people submit their stories! Thanks!
