In some cases white noise may help suppress the sound so that it's less bothersome. Your doctor may suggest using an electronic device to suppress the noise.  Drugs can't cure tinnitus, but in some cases they may help reduce the severity of symptoms or complications.. Neuromodulation using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a painless, noninvasive therapy that has been successful in reducing tinnitus symptoms for some people....

First & foremost it is very important for you to understand that Otosclerosis is a progressive degenerative disease for which there is no cure as of today. The progressive tinnitus is actually an indication of this. Stapedotomy is merely a rehabilitation process wherein the sound conduction mechanism is bypassed with pistons directly to the cochlea giving about 10-15 years unaided hearing to the ears but this does nothing to slow or stop the progression of the degenerative processes in the cochlea itself! Some studies even say that stapedotomy even hastens the degenerative process which is why I usually prescribe hearing aids with zen programs to these patients instead of doing a stapedotomy to the second ear!
