Hi,thanks for query.Do not worry,minor perforation heals readily and there is nothing much to worry about.It normally takes couple weeks to heal properly depending the size and location of perforation.Wax is fine and will not interfere.You need to do nothing ,just do as advised by your doctor.
wishing him good health.
