Do I need surgery again?

I had reconstructive surgery on my left ear drum on January 13 2011 and everything went ok. Now it is October 28 2013 and everything is back the way it was before I had the surgery. I have a lot of drainage and pain. I just want to be able to hear out of my left ear without the severe pain and drainage.

It is imperative that you consult and trust your surgeon. A lot of drainage and pain is not consistent with a normal recovery from surgery.
