Our expert says:
If it has fallen out, and you experience the same pain as before, it is possible that the grommet has fallen out. Grommets are not permanent, and will fall out. If the original problem still persists, your symptoms will come back.
Some patients, especially children, may reqiuire more than one set of grommets, but your treating doctor should advise you. If you are unsure, it is possible to just look in the ear to see if they have come out. Your GP should be able to see this.
