Ear Otitis Media  - Preparing for surgery

Preparation For Surgery

The doctor should be informed if the child has fever and cough just before the surgery. The surgery might be postponed if the child is found to be unfit for surgery. If the child has any history/family history of bleeding disorder or any previous problems with anaesthesia, it should be brought to the doctor's attention.

Soon After Surgery

The child might still be sleepy and have vomiting from the effects of general anaesthesia. This will wear off with a little time. After a few hours, he will be allowed to drink water. Eating will resume depending on the child's state. An immediate improvement in hearing should follow after surgery.
