Eardrum ruptured AFTER tympanoplasty
Hope you're feeling better soon! Good luck!
I'm curious what you ended up doing after your eardrum ruptured after having your tympanoplasty. The same exact thing happened to me and my surgery was only about 18 months ago. I have a tear and I'm trying to figure out my options (among them to have the surgery again with cartilage this time to ensure it's stronger).
Thanks Kittywitty for the reply. I'm pondering a second tympanoplasty myself. Do you know if the surgeon used cartilage this time instead of a skin graft? Have you been able to swim ok and shower ok since your last surgery? When was your last surgery? Sorry to hear about your taste buds being affected. That doesn't sound fun at all.
