what problem you are having? If your ear drum has disappeared completely there is no other way than surgery. Yes you can under go surgery at this age. If you cooperate this surgery can be done under local anaeshthesia. take care of your ear dont allow water to enter ear. keep ear dry avoid getting cold

Hi Kumaresan,

The doctor has mentioned about the perforated eardrum I suppose. If there is total perforation then surgery is required for repairing of the eardrum. It can be definitely done at this age unless you are having other medical ailments like uncontrolled diabetes, hypertension and upper respiratory tract infections. Till you get your surgery done avoid water into both the ears, keep it free from infections any cold or ear discharge please report to your ENT specialist immediately.

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
