I’m 21 years old female. My ear has been blocked since March. From March until now, I went to clinic for few times, they all said my ear looked normal so the reason of ear block might be due to the e-tube block. After eaten their medicine, the ear block problem become better but still not completely settled. I am planning to go to see specialist but I afraid that my problem will be serious because my ear has been blocked for 8 months already. What are the possible treatment of this problem? Need to undergo surgery or only need to eat medicine? How much is the risk of failure of the surgery?
