my daughter is 16. She has had 15 sets of ear tubes from regular ones T-Tubes. They just keep falling out. her ears keep rejecting them and when they fall out it is a matter of time till the fluid gets stuck behind the ear canal and closes. With this..she has tremendous hearing loss. I have had MANY second options..they all say the same..That she has sucky ustation tubes...very rare case. we are waiting for that new procedure to be approved by the FDA that they use on sinus' right now where they insert a balloon to drain..That is our only hope? She is going back in for surgery this Tuesday and we are going to go back to the simple tubes..not the T-Tubes because the T Tubes have longer falanges and the wax pulls them out more easily. My dilema as always......But mind you..when those tubes are in..She I can hear PERFECT! They are great...if they stay in place!
