I recently got a septoplasty. My problem started two months ago when I had a breathing problem, and my ear was also blocked. I used to have mild pain in my ear. The doctor checked my ear, and he said it is fine. He said that my Eustachian tubes are blocked, and I had a deviated nasal septum. The doctor suggested septoplasty, which will help resolve breathing problem as well as open up my Euschtasian tubes. It has been 24 days since the operation, and my breathing problem is over, but my ear and tubes are blocked. I went to the doctor again, and he did suction. He told me to continue steam inhalation and wash. But there is no effect on my ear, and it stays blocked. Sometimes, I get mild pain, and it is always full. Is there any other way to remove the block? Is something stuck inside my tube, as no mucus comes out when I do steam inhalation? It is very uncomfortable. Please suggest.

Thank you for replying. Whenever I do a nasal wash, water goes in my ear, which creates a problem and I feel uneasy. I think after the suction yesterday, I have water in my ear again. What to do now? My ear is paining as well.
