Handling Of The Ruptured Eardrum Without Surgery?
Hello, sorry I want to ask, my father was diagnosed with a ruptured eardrum and had surgery, is there any other way besides surgery?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain how your father's illness journey. In the past if your father's eardrum had just been torn (due to an infection in the middle ear, or due to trauma / injury to the ear) and the tear was also not too large, generally no treatment was needed and the eardrum could close by itself. However, if the eardrum has ruptured for a long time and the tear does not close on its own, or the tear is so large that it is not possible to close alone, surgery is necessary to close the eardrum.
It is better to discuss it again with the ENT doctor who treats your father to find out for sure the therapeutic options that your father has because your father's ENT doctor is the one who directly checks the condition of your father's ears. If you want to ask for a second opinion, you can take your father to another ENT doctor so that you can re-evaluate the condition of your father's ears. Without knowing the history of your father's illness and without doing a direct examination, of course, can not be decided whether your father needs an eardrum closure surgery or not.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
