Our expert says:
Neo, there is nothing to worry about. The operation is as safe as any other and if you don’t have it done it might stay open. The problem is that things like shampoo can enter the middle ear through the hole and cause serious damage to the middle ear (resulting in hearing loss). The best would be to have it repaired and get it over with. Good luck.
