Brief Answer:
Details as discussed below:

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for writing back.

1. The Impedance Audiogram (Tympanogram) shows 'B' type graph with a positive pressure in the right ear suggestive of fluid in the right middle ear (behind the ear drum). There is 'C' type graph with negative pressure in the left ear suggestive of a vacuum in the left ear.

2. Give medication for 4 to 8 weeks and repeat these tests before considering surgery.

3. It is important to get a baseline X-ray done. A lateral skull X-ray for adenoids can be repeated after a couple of months to check the regression of the adenoids, if any.

4. The requirement for ear ventilation tubes (grommets) can be decided on repeated tympanograms if there is no change after medical treatment.

5. Upload these repeat test results after a few weeks. You can upload these here or directly at bit.ly/Dr-Sumit-Bhatti

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
