my son has had a operation for grommets - should he be experiencing 'popping'

Hi All

Totally new on here so may not be posting in the right place :-)

My son has just had his 3rd operation for grommets (this time a more permanent t-tube in one ear and normal grommet in the other)

However I cannot remember him previously complaining of 'popping' in his ears a couple of days after the op -- he had the op Thurs -- I was hoping this time it would magically make his hearing and pain better and now feeling a bit deflated that maybe this op has made no difference to his constant pain (although he does tell me he can hear things 'louder' now)

Just wondering if anyone else's children have had a t-tube op and if 'popping' a couple of days after is normal -- will phone GP on Monday - but keen to know now

Thanks :-)
