Brief Answer:
Granular myringitis does not need surgery

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Granular myringitis does not need surgery and can be managed with antibiotic steroid drops and oral antibiotics alone.

Only if you have a hole in your ear drum then surgery may be required.

Please discuss this with your doctor

Take care!!

He did mention that there was also a hole in the eardrum. Does that need surgery and how complicated is it. Also can it be finished within 10 days including followup inspection.

Brief Answer:
yes a hole needs surgery

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Yes, a hole in the ear drum needs surgery. If the hole is small, then the surgery can be done fast and a follow up can be done in 10 days. However if the hole is large then a longer follow up for 3 to 6 weeks is required. Please discuss this with your doctor.


Thanks

Brief Answer:
yes it can be treated later

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Yes it can be treated later, but please remember that there is chance for the infection to keep recurring because of the hole and can lead to some hearing loss.

You will need rest for 2-3 weeks , so you should plan accordingly!

Take care!
