Ear Discharge Still Comes Out After 7 Months After Ear Surgery?
I want to ask, I have been operating for almost 7 months, but why does it still come out?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what kind of operation did you undergo before? What complaint did you experience, or what illness did you suffer from so that you have to undergo the surgery?
Excessive discharge from the ear is often caused by otitis media, which is inflammation of the middle ear, which includes the bones of hearing. This inflammation often occurs due to infection, can originate from the spread of respiratory tract infections that spread through the Eustachian tube. Initially, the spread of this infection will cause pus to accumulate in the middle ear, and cause the sufferer to feel pain, full ears such as fever, nausea, and decreased hearing function. As the disease progresses, the eardrum that limits the middle and outer ear will tear, so that pus will come out as excessive ear fluid accompanied by a more significant decrease in hearing function.
Without knowing what type of operation you were in before, it is difficult for us to determine whether your current complaint has anything to do with the operation, or not. Therefore, we recommend that you check your ears again with your doctor or ENT specialist so that they are given the right treatment according to the type of disease you are experiencing. Avoid the use of any ear drops carelessly without consulting a doctor first.
At this time, you should clean the liquid coming out of your ears using clean gauze. Avoid the habit of poking excessive ears with any tool, including cotton buds. Don't dive or swim before the doctor says it's safe for you to do it.
Hope this helps ...
