I told you so SIR!! I wish men were not so stubborn....!!!!! Are they going to put in a tube. That does sort of look like a grommet, LOL is that what you are talking about! They keep the ear clear of fluid but you usually have to use ear puty to keep water out when you shower or bathe after that, until the tube falls out on its own. That can take months.. I am sorry it is hurting I was worried you would let it go too long!! So sorry.. I hope it gets better fast.. when are they going to do it. The grommet will actually drain the ear, that's what it does provides a exit for the fluid until your ear heals. If they did not put that in, your ear drum would close up and you would build more fluid because it was not healed yet.. Oh so sorry... You should listen to the silly women that was giving you advice.. she has become very good at spotting ear problems eh?? I have had 22 yrs on the job training in severe ear problems.. LOL

LOL... Why are you sorry SIr! I was teasing you.. By the way most tubes are not visible they are put in with a minor sugery that can be done with you awake with just a topical anesthetic basicly..and right in the ear doctors office, at least that's how they do it here. It will be alright! It's pretty short procedure depending on what they do here!! You just have to hold real still. Johnny had his done I am thinking 6 to 8 times or more over the years. The last couple were done in the office... Less expensive and No general anesthetic. I hope you don't need surgery. Perhaps some heavy antibiotics? I wish you well..

You have a busy Month coming up.. just try and relax.. and go with the flow and all will work out!!
