I have 2 dc who have had grommets for hearing loss and speech problems, rather than for ear infections. I would recommend using same consultant who recommended the op to do the op. We ended up with a different one and wasn't ideal as they all have different views. Also may affect if they want adenoids etc too. Presumably your private consultant cant be too booked up, if it is only another month or so it shouldn't make too much difference.

Have they spoken to you shout referring him on to hearing services in the meantime for hearing aids? This is becoming a more popular, less invasive method. If his hearing is that impaired you would do well to ask to see them anyway.

Good luck, I hope you get it sorted smile.

I hope they sort it for him, I do know how worrying it is.

My son has had several sets of grommets & t-tubes as well as wearing hearing aids, & it is frustrating when such a minor procedure is delaying their progress.

I would say (if you would be able) to ring up & ask to be placed on a cancellation list. Children often have to cancel their surgery due to colds/ illness etc. Twice I've been called asking if we could go in that same day.

Sorry - I don't understand your question - wouldn't you have to phone round to find an ENT available? I know mumsnet is good but it's not that good....

Sorry to be flippant OP, I share your concerns....

Maybe repost with who can recommend a good private ENT in London/south? And then check availability?

Have you thought about trying non dairy eg sheep/goat milk/ cheese for a few weeks?

We are not near you but on a long waiting list. Private ENT are more adult based so I'd prefer a paediatric ENT hence the wait.

My daughter sees David Albert at Portland Hospital. No idea of his availability though.
