I'm very angry at my last ENT. I don't think this is normal. Thanx
How long since the tube fell out? I still have min in, but my dr. told me that when it came out it would most likely take a month or so till the hole healed, with about a 10% chance that it would not, requiring surdery to patch. Maybe it just needs a little time? I woulden't rush for the surgery if its not too bothersome.
