Tubes inserted when I was 12...

...22 years later, my Dr. notices they're still in my ears! LOL

Needless to say I was dumfounded when she said that to me yesterday, especially being that my ears have been looked into probably sixty times since then. Of course my main question was, how could that have gone unnoticed after all these years? The answer that I got was that they essentially went in further rather than coming out like they were supposed to, and many bouts of sinus congestion basically pushed them into view all these years later! Plus tissue growth and scar tissue also kept them well hidden.

I've had ear issues my whole life, and in the last 22 years I pretty much attributed all of my problems to allergies, which probably is still the case however those tubes sitting there all of this time have contributed their fair share of grief!

Obviously they have to come out now! LOL And I shake my head and think...only me!
