Yellow Discharge After Tympanoplasty Surgery?
Good afternoon. I am a CSOM patient who just underwent tympanoplasty surgery a week ago. At the moment my ear still comes out slightly yellow, is this normal after surgery? Thanks.

Timpanoplasty is a surgical procedure on the ear to improve the condition of the damaged or hollow ear drum. Perforated eardrums can occur due to middle ear infections or due to trauma (blows, punctures or explosive noises). This surgery is performed if the patient experiences recurrent or CSOM (chronic suppurative otitis medical) that is difficult to cure with drugs.
There are several things that can be experienced after undergoing tympanoplasty surgery, namely ringing in the ears and headaches. However, this complaint will only be temporary until the patient is accustomed to and there has been improvement after the operation.
As for complaints of discharge of yellowish fluid, there has been no reported. These complaints can also be caused by otitis externa (OE) or inflammation of the external ear canal.
You should control earlier than your doctor has scheduled. The doctor will carry out a related examination to determine the cause. Then treatment will be given if needed. Meanwhile, you should avoid picking your ears.
Thus hopefully useful.
