Q.

Gaatjie in oordrom

My dogtertjie (8) het van kleins af oor probleme. Syt op 10 maande haar eerste grommits gekry. Sodra sy verkoue kry loop die ore maar weer, wat natuurlik normaal is. Haar oorspesialis het my meegedeel dat sy van kleins af al ''n gaatjie in haar oordrom het, wat hy nou op 8 jarige ouderdom eers kan regmaak. Wat is die prosedure om dit reg te maak?

Hi Lizel!

It is good to note that your specialist has begun management, as middle infections are common among children. Your specialist would conduct a procedure known as a tympanoplasty {surgery to rectify the hole/perforation on the eardrum}. It would be a good idea to also visit an Audiologist post treatment, so that an assessment of her hearing may be conducted and monitored thereof.

Kind regards...
