One of the important things we learn at medical school is to keep looking for a cause for any aberration till we find it; having said that, if one has made a concerted effort to rule out any problems, 2 things come to mind: either the treatment we gave was not correct (wrong diagnosis, wrong modality of treatment, wrong dose, wrong something) or, there is another cause for a given constellation of symptoms that has not been considered.
In your case, the effort so far has been to look at the inner ear
, inner ear, inner ear. What if the problem is elsewhere? There are many causes of vomiting
, imbalance and falling - has the doctor considered ruling out those? If he is an ENT surgeon, you need to ask him to refer her to a general pediatrician
, who is likely to be more "rounded" in his assessment as compared to the ENT doctor.
I suggest that you seek a general pediatric opinion before thinking about removing the tubes or doing something like that.
