adult ear tubes

I have always had pressure problems when flying resulting in ear pain and plugged up ears. When I last flew 2 years ago, both ears plugged up and never unplugged. I just had tubes put in my ears two days ago so I can safely fly again as long as they stay in. I noticed definite decrease in hearing and very itchy ears since then. I am using some antibiotic drops so that could be causing the itching. Anyone else had this problem after tube insertion. Does the itching stop and the hearing improve back to what it was before the tubes were put in? Thanks for your input.
