Q.

Grommets

I need some help. My son had grommets put in last year May. (He will be 2 in Feb) Do I still have to keep the water out his ears as I would like to send him for swimming lessons.
How long do they normally stay in for?

Paediatrician

This needs to be looked at. Grommets can stay in for variable periods of time. The best would be to contact your doctor or ENT surgeon for advice. They may know whether they have fallen out already.
