In brief: See an ENT doctor

Your perforated eardrum may have healed, and the doctor can extract the wax and check your ear and advise you about flying.
Good luck.

In brief: See doctor

If your ear is blocked, it will be very uncomfortable to fly.
You should have the cerumen removed before the flight.
