I saw an ENT last august for hearing loss. While I was in there, he told me I had a perforated eardrum on the left. I have absolutely no idea when this happened, how long it's been there. (It could have been there years). At no point did he ever tell me what to do about it, just sent me on my way. The HIS I saw a week later was surprised he left it. I have a propensity to scarring, specifically keloid scarring, which is absolutely not what you want to mess with, so I'm highly against surgery. I've had no symptoms, not a single earache, no dizziness nothing. Has anyone else perforated their eardrum and not noticed.
