replacement ear tubes in adults

due to radiation to the head/neck, I had to have several tubes put in to help me hear better.
the tubes that are put in, i am told, are to last for 4 years, but unfortuntely that's not happening with me.
one tube came out 1 month later after it was inserted, my body rejected it, as i was told. the other ear, only
2 year later is slipping out of postition already. :o(      
since the tube are put in at my dr.'s office and i am not eager to rush to get another set put in.  
has anyone else had this happen, is there a surgical method (maybe) thats out there that i am
missing??  
thanx all for any comments
