Retracted Eardrum

2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with an outer ear infection. After using eardrops my doctor prescribed, this infection cleared up, but I still had permanent pressure on my right ear (where I hear myself really loud and everything else is kind of muffled...kind of like on an airplane, but permanent). I saw an ENT and she told me that I have a retracted eardrum. Gave me Prednisone for a week and nasonex spray and told me it should be gone in about 3 weeks. Is this true? I have read so much on the internet about people who cannot ever get rid of this annoying condition. The ENT did not explain to me why my eardrum is retracted. I am really worried.
