Hello - I had sinus surgery, my deviated septum corrected, and tubes put in my ears on June 20th. For several weeks after my left ear has felt like it was under water while it was healing. After several weeks I could tell that it was getting better, and my ENT said that the left side had been worse than the right and to just be patient. About a week ago I noticed that it was so much better! The under water seemed to have gone away and I was hearing better. But over this last week it has come back again. I am curious if I should be contacting my ENT about this. Perhaps an infection is starting to cause pressure to build up again? I am very careful during my showers to wear ear plugs and not get any water on my ears, so I'm not sure why the under water symptom would come back.
