3rd Set of Ear Tubes in a Child

When my son was 3, he had his tonsils/adenoids removed and a set of ear tubes put in.  He's now 7 and still dealing with fluid build-up which is causing hearing loss (no infections).  They're recommending a third set of ear tubes and was wondering if anyone else has had a similar dilemna.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm in the same possition.  My daughter is 7 and her ENT just recommended yesterday a 3rd set of tubes.  Again like your son she has no ear infections, just fluid buildup which is affecting her hearing.  I really don't know if I should go with the surgery or not....please help
