I had a ear tube put in my left ear today in office. Is it normal for the ear to feel or be inflamed, not hear well? What's normal after tube surgery?

Not sure. A ventilation tube inserted in the office or in the hospital is almost always performed for a middle ear effusion. (fluid in the middle ear cavity). Normally, there should be no symptoms except that the hearing has been significantly improved. All your symptoms are not what you should have after this rather simple surgical procedure. See you doctor.

I had ear tubes put in yesterday and now I can barely hear out of my left ear and it hurts worse now than it did before, is this normal?

Recovery.... Post surgical recovery can vary. If symptoms persist I would call/visit with ENT who put tubes in and discuss concerns and perform physical exam. Look for any signs of infection, tube failure. Read more...
