You may be prescribed ear drops to use post operatively. These should be used for 3 to 5 days unless advised differently. Rarely these can sting or cause discomfort when placed – if worried please contact me.
Keep the ears dry until your first post operative review. You can use cotton-wool dipped in Vaseline in each ear when having a bath or shower.
Avoid swimming until your surgeon has advised
When swimming re-starts, avoid diving to more than 1 metre depth.
If ear discharge occurs, please contact the rooms
A follow up appointment is typically arranged for 6 weeks after surgery. Typically a hearing test will be arranged prior.
If there are any other concerns, please contact the rooms.
