How is it possible to "restore" hearing? She won't hear normally again.

Those are Nerves....good luck fixing them, she will still be hearing impaired still

Depends on the type of hearing loss.

A cochlear implant can help restore hearing, but it is quite expensive. This is the same surgery Rush Limbagh had.

BTW... what do you mean its just nerves? Nerves can be repaired a number of ways, nerve grafting, neurorrhaphy, direct nerve repair, cable nerve grafting, nerve crossover surgery, etc...

Ear plugs, seriously.

I believe a club is at either a 120dB or 140dB level. 120dB is the limit and you can stand that for 4 - 6 hours, anymore and you damage your hearing. 140dB is like 2 - 4 hours.

Well they cannot regenerate themselves.. There's a reason why paralyzed people can't walk again. You could try to attempt to fix it but it will never be the same.

Cochlear implant works on deaf people, to make them hear on par with hearing impaired people, basically.

You want plugs designed to protect against audio. to get some color matched and that fit flush you'll need to go to your local doc and get a custom mould made. I had mine done around 4 yrs ago, they still fit snug and are barely noticable. Makes it sucky when you want to talk to a girl though. Mine were covered by health insurance..

You want something like these. They are designed to allow your ear to breathe (not waterproof), allow sound to get in (not muffled, so you can still enjoy concerts or clubs), but they lower the volume: http://www.hearos.com/products-00211.htm
