Ear not draining
sgc531 posted:
My right ear has not drained in over 7 months. I have been on an antibiotic, 2 types of steroids and a nasal spray. I can not hear out of this ear and it is constantly itching. Last week, my ENT put a tube in it to get it to drain. He did suction out some fluid and told me i should be all good. Still 5 days after and there is no change. I can hear the air going in and out of the tube but that is all i can hear. I go back on Thursday but was wondering if there is anything else i can try?
