Should permanent ear tube be removed?
I'm 47, and had an ear tube inserted in 2003.  My first two tubes fell out in months, and the doctor inserted what he called a "more permanent' tube, but said it would probably fall out in about 18 months to 3 years.  I've had no problems whatsoever, until I had the flu this last month with a lot of thick mucous and a sinus infection that went away without needing to visit the doctor.   Now my right ear is stopped up and ringing all the time.  Could it be that my ear tube needs to be removed?  Thanks for answering.
