Moozles had glue ear when she was four and five. And then when she was six, she got grommets put in and had her adenoids taken out. This made a huge difference to her hearing. Well, we recently noticed that her hearing had deteriorated again. Last week Moozles saw the ENT Consultant who advised that she use an Otovent balloon three times a day. Basically she blows up the balloon with her nose, which will then open up her Eustachian tubes and hopefully the fluid that is built up in her middle ear will drain away.
Husband has glue ear that he never outgrew. In January, Dubz had grommets put in. There is a strong family history of glue ear (which basically means that I spend a lot of time shouting at everyone). Moozles will see the ENT again in five weeks, and if the Otovent hasn’t helped then she will get grommets again. Fingers crossed we get rid of that glue ear soon!
