Ear care after surgery
Although hard to tell without photos or an exam, what you're describing may be excessive scar tissue, a so-called "spitting suture" (a suture being forced out by the body), or a separation of the incision (called a dehiscence). Your next best step is to check in your surgeon, as an in-person exam is usually necessary for diagnosis, and your surgeon can troubleshoot a lot of post-operative worries and findings in clinic. You have trusted your surgeon to do your operation; continue to trust him/ her to provide your post-operative care. Good luck in your recovery!
