My ENT surgeon has suggested grommets for eustachian tube disfunction which i have in both ears, although i'm not convinced this is the correct thing to have. The reason being is that at the very end of our recent discussion, he said grommets will help unblock the ears and equalise the pressure. However, my ears are not blocked, quite the opposite in fact. After doing a lot of research myself, i suspect that the symptoms indicate patulous eustachian tube, which is where the eustachian tube spends too much time open for what ever reason, resulting in autophony symptoms and generally everything being too loud, as if my ears are constantling "popped". I dont see how grommets will help. Should i get a second opinion before going through with the operation?
