    Has anyone ever had a Myringoplasty?

    Its basically a skin graft operation to repair a perforated ear drum. Ive been scheduled for one in January sometime due to the hole in my drum. I have the hearing of a 65 year old in that ear and constant discharge. Docs say I wont get hearing back due to 'bone damage' but discharge will stop.

    Anyone else had it? Whats it like afterwards? Ive had 5 sets of grommits since I was tiny and so operations dont bother me - just wondered cos doctor said theres a high failure rate what peoples stories are - if any?
