My 7 year old son had his first operation when he was 2 years old, he had his tonsils and adenoids taken out and his first set of grommits put in. Just 4 months later the grommits had come out without correcting his hearing problem, it was decided to put some more grommits in but yet again they did not work for him. it took another 2 attempts with the grommits within a year of each other before his consultant offerd me a same kind of procedure as the grommit but it was called the T tube procedure it works like a grommit but it is permanant. we decieded to try the T tube and yes it has worked his hearing is now perfect but we solve one problem and another problem accures, my son now suffers with at least one ear infection a month some worse than others. when we discussed his ear infections with his consultant he gave us an alternative. We could either take the T tubes out and my sons hearing would fails and he would need to wear hearing aids, or we can keep the T tubes in and basicly put up with the monthly ear infections, i have just 2 months to decide i relly dont know what to do for the best.:?:headhurts:
