My son has had problems with his ears since he was 2-3 years old & had tubes twice. We recently noticed him having a hard time hearing in some instances & made him a ENT appt to see if he needed fluid drained or if we were gonna have to do tubes again etc… During his appt the Dr informed us that his right eardrum had collapsed & suggested we do a Baha implant. This has been difficult for my family because our first concern is obviously his quality of life & his hearing but I’m having a hard time accepting that there is no other options for this young man other than an implant in his head. Can someone with more experience in these matters tell me if there is any other surgeries etc that my son could benefit from that could help restore his hearing? We have setup a appt for a second opinion & am really Lookin for insight into this because I don’t want my son to be teased & made fun of if there are any other options!
