My right ear half gone as per audiometry test, now managing by left ear. Some docs say to continue like this so long it is manageable, some suggest to be on trial by hearing aid. My question will the left ear be damaged while other one takes the load?

Both the ears are equally contribute at the level of brain in normal people. In yo case left ear is doing his own with little extra effort for right. So it vl gradually deteriorate in future may b with a balance problem. God has given two ears for the holy purpose, if one is damaged supplement it. Go for the latest hearing test and use digital programmable hearing aids.
