    Ear tubes and drainage
    kimberly15607 posted:
    My little one got ear tubes last month. Ever since then he has been having what appears to be liquid wax draining from his ear. We have been back to the ENT and I have sent a message to check up on this. The day we saw her she said he looked great and then one ear drained that night. It starts as liquid, but once it dries it is like wax. There is no odor to it.

    Has anyone else experienced an increase in drainage after tubes were placed?

    my son got tubes at 9m, now 16m, every so often he will have drainage that will come n' go for a day, to weeks. apparently this is normal. we've been seeing an ENT dr since he was born every 4-8w; and they have always said 'thats what the tubes are suppose to do'
