Fluid in the ears

Hello,
My son is 12 and has been having ear issues for about 5yrs. He finally got tubes in 2009. In 2010 the tubes didn't come out on their own they were stuck in the wax that had hardened due to the fluid. The doctor took them out cleaned his ears. Every time I turn around his ears are plugged again and the ENT I just took him to gave him a hearing test which he failed and she said his ears will drain. Having fluid sit in his ears all the time can't possibly be good for his hearing. Is there any advise or idea what I should be asking them to do to fix this problem?
Please someone help me!!
Jen
