Ear Tube Followup

APPOINTMENT IN THE ENT CLINIC AT CHILDRENS HOSPITAL WITH KRISTINA KEPPEL, APNP ON FEBRUARY 24, 2011 AT 3:15PM.  (FOLLOW UP AFTER BILATERAL EAR TUBE SURGERY ON FEBRUARY 3, 2011)

1)    Kristina examined Ryan’s ears and the ear tubes are in good position.  She said the tubes would stay in place for about a year.  She found just a bit of ear wax in both ears but nothing to be concerned about.  Ryan had ear drops post-surgery.  She said is there is excessive drainage from the ears, it may indicate an ear infection and may need ear drops.  See your local pediatrician for that.

2)    Just to be safe, if he is going to go in lake or pool water, use ear putty.  

3)    Schedule an ENT follow up appointment for June or July, 2011. 

4)    They tested his hearing and he passed.
