Our expert says:
Healing after surgery may be due to a variety of causes:
1. Size of perforation
2. Type of closure used (cartilage graft vs. temporalis facia graft)
3. Original reason for perforation
4. Pre-operative hearing status (ie. ossicular chain involvement)
You should go back to your ENT surgeon for an examination to check the status of the tympanic membrane,
and to see which factors exist that could extend the healing process. The healing process is always different in patients, because of all these factors that vary in these cases.
