were you told to keep fluids out of the ears?
I'm asking because my son had tubes put in Aug. 13 2008 and was told the chance of infection was very small since the tubes helped the ears drain of any fluid so not to bother plugging them.
Now his tubes may have fallen out I'm not sure but he has another infection. He's crying that his ear hurts bad, I feel so horrible

I've been batteling problems with my sons ears now for 9 years.  Some docs say absolutly no water in there and some docs have said its fine.  So I guess it depends on their pov.

Thanks ladies! I gave him some tylenol and he says they don't hurt anymore so maybe its something else. I have an appointment for him at 11:30 anyways. I think I'm going to start plugging them now.
