After Your Child's Ear Tube SurgeryStreaming Video - 2013
So your child's had ear tube surgery. What do you need to know when going home? I'm Dr. Alan Greene. I'd like to discuss with you some tips for right after ear tube surgery. First of all, what can you expect after the surgery? Usually because there had been fluid in the ear, hearing will improve right away. In fact, maybe so much so their ears are little sensitive for the first day. There may also be a low grade temperature for a couple of days, and it's not unusual at all to have some discharge out of the tubes for two or three days. What kind of care does your child need? Often your doctor will prescribe some pain medications that you want to be sure and give regularly. When should you call your doctor back? You'll want to call your doctor if there are signs of an infection developing. Or your child getting more of a fever or a fever lasting longer than we've discussed. In terms of activity, your child can pretty much do what they feel like. Great activity will not dislodge the tube.
