I had a loader driver a few years ago that had this happen.
I think it got slightly better but is still very deaf in one ear.
He has obtained a class 1 medical, but had to go through a few extra examinations to get it, and maybe has restrictions on it but not sure.
Other than that I can't be of any help but best of luck getting it sorted I'm sure you will.
