MY 14-year old son (who has special needs) has to have cholesteatoma surgery removal once again. Over the last 3 years, he's already had the surgery twice before. This will be our third attempt to get rid of this very annoying, very scary problem. Here's the question...what type of surgery do we go with? Our doctor has proposed the modified radical as an option to consider. He told us its our decision to do the same surgery we've done 2 times before or try this. So, I've been doing research and the result of that is that I'm more scared and more confused than ever. I've read about smells, and never able to get wet, and granulation tissue, and constant drainage...none of which sound good at all. But, how many time can I continue to put my poor son through this surgery only to have it recur? I would love to hear your thoughts, personal experiences, and advice. (Central Florida, USA)
