Ear, Nose & Throat

I have seen the GP about my condition called Perforation tympanic membrane. They have referred me to see a CGH (Changi General Hospital) ENT specialist next week.

So my current situation is having pain and slight bleeding at times, with yellow liquid dripping from my ear at night. Most of the bleeding and dripping of liquid happens during my sleep. But if I compare my hearing impact from the day I got myself injured, it has improved. I’m currently on pain killer and warfarin due to my heart problem.

Would appreciate your advice to tell me if it’s normal to have bleeding during the healing process. If it’s not normal, what should I do next. Thanks.

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Dear Ambuj,

Please be reassured that your symptoms are normal for someone who suffered a tympanic membrane rupture. However, as Dr Gan pointed out, please see an ENT Specialist ASAP if the bleeding becomes profuse, especially since you are on warfarin.

Dear Ambuj,

Thank you for your question. If your tympanic membrane perforation is due to an injury, it is not uncommon to have bleeding from the ear following the injury, depending on the extent of soft tissue injury sustained. If the bleeding is mild, e.g only blood stain on tissue, you can use the eardrops given by your GP and see the ENT Specialist next week. Since you have yellow ear discharge as well, you might have developed an ear infection.

However, if it is profuse, you should see an ENT Specialist earlier as other measures to stop the bleeding (e.g. ear packing or cauterization) may be required. If you are unsure and worried, the best is to get it assessed early by an ENT Specialist.

Hope this helps.
