Hi,
I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT PREFER ANY MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR UNSAFE CSOM. IT IS ALWAYS SURGERY. MAIN AIM IS TO MAKE THE EAR AND THE PATIENT SAFE, NOT THE HEARING OR ANYTHING ELSE. IF IT IS SURELY AN UNSAFE CSOM, DO NOT WASTE TIME, FOLLOW YOUR DOCTORS ADVICE
Hoping an early recovery
Thanks

if it is 2 months, I think you should go by your doctor decision. Take a second opinion from ENT specialist  if you do not like it.
