After your ear surgery the ear normally will feel somewhat numb – this is normal and will usually pas in a few weeks.
It is important to keep the ear dry to allow healing to proceeds and avoid infection.

Blotch, ear putty or Prologs can be used to keep water out when showering or bathing.

There may be a slight blood stained discharge for the first 24 hours.

You may have some ear drops to use after surgery. Ear drops are best given with the patient lying down with the ear upper most. After the drops enter the ear canal a few gentle pumps on the front part of the ear – this will help them enter the deeper part of the ear. The patient should lie on their side for 5-10 minutes after insertion of the medication.

Pain or continuing discharge from the ear may signal infection. Please contact Mr. Burgess or your local doctor if this occurs.
