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.
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
