I would recommend that you get in touch with the ENT again and discuss your concerns with him. Ask him about the urgency. Is he currently treating the ears with anything else?
The urgency is not necessarily in the grommets but in the treatment of the middle ears. Remember if there is fluid building up or infection then there can be a temporary level of hearing loss. That means that your little one is hearing less than he should and by implication missing language and speech information. Please follow-up on this as soon as possible and speak to your ENT. It will also be advisable to have a hearing test done by an Audiologist once all medical possibilities are cleared up. It is important to monitor children's hearing on a regular basis
