Some patients may experience temporary vertigo or dizziness after stapedectomy surgery. This is usually due to disturbance of the inner ear during the procedure. The vertigo typically resolves within a few days or weeks as the ear heals.

Some patients may experience temporary changes in taste perception after stapedectomy surgery. This is usually due to the proximity of the surgical site to the taste buds. The taste changes are generally temporary and resolve on their own.
