I had tympanoplasty and mastoidectomy surgery on a few years back. I had a deep attic pocket and an ear infection, due to which I was told to have surgery. I visited my doctor last week, and he declared me fit and allowed me to swim and bathe with cotton on. But I had some discharge the other day, so I tried to wipe it with my finger. The surgery was done through the canal, so I have quite a big canal. So somehow, my finger went inside, and my nail hit the eardrum, which was newly placed. I don't know what to do now. Do I have to undergo this surgery again? Kindly help.
