Repairing your eardrum involves going through surgery to correct any tears or holes in the eardrum itself. Surgery is often used for replacing or repairing the three bones that lie behind the eardrum. Your eardrum is an extremely thin membrane that lies between the middle and outer ear. Whenever sound waves hit against it, the membrane will vibrate. Trauma and ear infections can cause damage to the structure, which will require bilateral myringoplasty. If you have a damage or infected eardrum, you can schedule your surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center and save money with I Need A Surgery.
If you are having trouble hearing in both ears after sustaining damage to the ears or after dealing with an ear infection, you might need surgery to help correct the problem.
If you only have a small tear or hole in the eardrum, it might be able to be patched with a paper-like tissue or gel. Since the procedure takes less than 30 minutes, you will often have it done right in the doctor’s office. A local anesthetic is often given. Pressure equalizing tubes are often inserted to help relieve some of the pressure from having the surgery done.
After the procedure, you are normally able to leave the hospital that same day. A cotton packing will be put in your ear. For about 5-7 days after the procedure, you will want to keep packing the ear. At times, you might end up with a bandage over the ear to keep it safe.
Eardrops are sometimes given following the surgery. Remove the packing gently and place the drops into your ear. Only put the packing back in your ear, nothing else.
Don’t let water get into the ear until you are given the okay. Avoid swimming. Always use a shower cap. Don’t blow your nose or pop your ears. If you have to sneeze, make sure your mouth stays open to avoid pressure in the eardrum.
Refrain from going to crowded places where someone might be ill. Catching a cold will only increase your chances of getting an infection.
