In brief: Not sure of question
If you mean that you are having ear infections following the placement of ear tubes then the tubes themselves sometimes can be the cause of infection.
Occasionally bacteria can form around the tube and lead to infections. Usually antibiotic ear drops will solve the problem, rarely the tubes have to be removed.
