Did a tymp (closure of ear drum hole) almost entirely on my own. The process wasn’t very pretty, or that efficient, or clean, but at the end it looked okay, the hole was closed and the graft was supported. And I did all the steps on my own.

Most of all, I lifted the annulus and got into the middle ear all on my own. It’s been this step that has always defeated me. The attending has always had to step at this juncture because I would never get it right.

But this time I lifted a broad plane and really stuck to the bone with the round knife. And the annulus eventually came up nicely.

At least, now I know that I am capable of doing a tymp on my own.
