you have a condition called csom which is associated with perforation (hole) in ear drum
if the hole is small then patient is given antibiotic ears drops for 6 months and we can wait to heal naturaly.. but beyond 6 months or big holes must be operated.. your condition is well over 6 months.. please do not wait to heal naturally because there are complications like cholesteatoma which will complicate things .. i would suggest you get your self operated
thank you
