The tympanic membrane aka eardrum can acquire several problems. These include perforation that leads to a hole in an ear drum, unnecessary deposits of calcium in the eardrum, accumulation of fluid and retraction pocket that is perhaps, the least common kind of problem that there is. Perforation is the most common problem and occurs due to infection mainly, but it can happen for several other causes, some of which include injuries or replacement of tubes.
A ruptured eardrum has several symptoms and if one identifies with any of these, he should straightaway visit a doctor.
Overview of the surgery:
This surgery is not complicated and a decent ENT specialist can perform it. The complications are nil and one can go to work the next day without worrying over the consequences because there will be none.

I used to have headaches almost every alternate days and it took heavy toll on my health. I also had issues with my hearing (there was a moderate hearing loss noted) and I was really depressed with this.
I was suffering from sleep apnea and had tried the traditional method of CPAP without any meaningful improvement. It was also very inconvenient and embarassing to carry it around for business travel, holidays etc.
