: I have a son who is now 18, and has had a problem with the eustachian tube not functioning only on his right side. It basically quit working when he was about 13, and he has had an ear tube inserted about every six months since then. At this point, when he gets an ear infection, it turns into asthma or pneumonia. Does anyone know of any way to restore the function to the eustachian tube? He has been tested for allergies, and dust is a culprit, but not a critical problem. The ENT is considering a tube placed in a notch in the bone under his eardrum. Anyone have any thoughts on this??

Hello, Seems you've covered the bases pretty well. Another ENT for 2nd opinion or alternative med might be a option. Might try www.doctortalk.com and ask a good Alternative MD about it. Good luck to you.
