hello and glad to know that he is doing well !! In any case since we already have the diagnosis there is no need for any extensive testing but if you are concerned you can definitely go for these as a routine: complete blood work up X ray chest and nasopharynx pure tone audiometry and impedance testing ( to rule out any middle ear or Eustachian tube block) complete examination by both pediatrician and ENT specialist If there is any problem or abnormal findings in any if these tests you can get back to me Hope this helps regards Dr Sriram Nathan
