Ear t-tube fell out, should I go to the doctor?
I had t-tubes put in when I was 7 and now I’m 21 and one of them just fell out. I’m having really bad pain and drainage and it sounds like I’m under water. I know they are technically supposed to fall out or be removed but these were in for a really long time.

from what I've seen with others , a tympanectomy tube where to drain the inner ear for 8 weeks than be removed and the hole heals up . so from 7 till now you have never been able to go swimming or take a shower ? you DEFINATLY need to go to a doctor .

Of course you should see your physician. It is possible that you will need to keep them in permanently - or maybe the drainage and pain are side effects of the tube removal, and will get better after a few days.

Yes, definitely see a doctor.
