Are blood clots common after a bilateral myringotomy with tubes?

Some times: Myringotomy is done to drain middle ear fluid, to prevent middle ear infection, which may cause deafness in the children, by inserting small tube in the membranous part of drum most of the time no bleeding or clotts, some times may bleed from surface vessel, and will stop. See your doctor for bleeding.
