Eardrum perforation from grommet

Recommended Posts

Mooples

Ds (4, getting close to 5) had a check up with his ent today. He’s had 2 sets of grommets and all has been normal up until today. Ent says one side is healing nicely, the other has a perforated ear drum. He doesn’t think it will heal on its own and he is likely going to need a graft to fix it when he’s older (7 at minimum).

Just looking for anyone else who has been through this? Did it end up healing on its own? Like all of us I never expected my kid to be the one with the rare outcome and to need a 1-2 hour repair surgery. The doctor said he’s not worried at this stage and that ds won’t even notice in regards to pain / hearing impacts which is reassuring.

My son had 4 sets of grommets. His ear drum which had been perforated ended up being ok. Now he’s 11 no more grommets
