Hi, can anyone share their experiences?
My daughter developed Glue Ear at 3 yrs old it took me a year of appointments and hearing tests, afetr which she had grommets which were an instant cure and fantastic. One fell out after 6 months the other after 18 months, she then got it back in one ear and had a temporary hearing aid and now the other ear and her hearing is terrible again. She is now 7 next week and feeling more self consious and got upset when some boys kicked her hearing aid around the playground one day. Has anyone had grommets for the second time? Any advise on this subject would be welcome Thanks everyone xx

We had them put in twice each ear for my second son, and we thought they'd fall out right away again, but still be worthwhile. They stayed in place several years the second time! It was certainly worth doing, even if it is only for a few months at a time.
