Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,
I have gone through your question and understand your worry and concern; and I would like to suggest that no need to worry because it is the common in most of the patient.

I would like to inform that

1. Do not be alarmed if you do not notice improvement in your hearing immediately following surgery.The Maximum improvement may require 4-6 months.

2.A bloody or watery discharge is expected during the healing process.

Better to consult with your operating surgeon.
