I just took my son to the specialist today because he’s had four ear infections in the last 4 months. The left ear is always worse than the right ear… sometimes the right ear is fine and it’s just the left that is infected.
The doctor said that it’s something he’ll eventually outgrow but the tubes will keep the ear infections down and he (and I) won’t have to go through the pain of them every month.
I’m just looking for some personal experiences from others whose children have had tubes. Was it expensive? Was it worth it? Did the ear infections stop? Any problems? I’m getting ready to do a little research on the Internet to find out what I can before I commit to having this done for him.
