I had a similar experience. I was put to sleep with general anesthetic for a minor operation. When I woke up I immediately thought that the surgeon must have used loud equipment during the procedure, because my ears were ringing. Turns out it was the anesthetic. I haven't heard true silence for 2 years now.
