ENT thoroughly cleaned out excessive ear wax today. Felt great. Now - only few hours later - feeling fullness/pressure again. Why?

In brief: Could be fluid

If they flushed ur ears out, u might have some retained fluid in ur ear canal.
Otherwise, u may be experiencing eustachian tube dysfunction. If no contraindications, u can dry taking a decongestant - like pseudoephedrine. If persists more than a few days, return to ENT. Remember nothing smaller than your elbow in your ear! :-)
