I think it is a very good thing that you are seeing the ENT and that you are going for repeated follow-ups. Although it is more common to see grommets in children, we are never too old for it and if the fluid does not clear up with the medication, it is advisable to go for grommets. It is a very small procedure where they make a little cut in the eardrum and insert the little tube and it can be very effective. It literally just allows the fluid that normally drain through the Eustachian tube down the throat, to drain through the eardrum. Also remember that the fluid can cause a temporry hearing loss and it will effect her learning and listening at school.
After all is cleared up medically, i would advise that you take her to an Audiologist for a hearing and middle ear evaluation, just to make sure that all is in order. If you don't know of someone in your area, please let me know and i will gladly refer you (firstname.lastname@example.org)
