Depends: If the perforation is small, the hearing should return rather quickly. However, if the perforation is associated with middle ear infection and fluid in the middle ear, the hearing may not return until the entire infection has resolved. The time for hearing to return, therefore, depends on the nature and extent of the middle ear pathology. An ear doctor may be of help.
