My son Garrett was 5 years old when he was diagnosed with a Cholesteatoma. Garrett had his surgery on Jan.2007 and was in surgery for over 5 hours. The doctor told us that it was the worst case that he had seen in someone so young. They found the growth after putting tubes in his ear in Dec. of 2006. It was a awful experience I had ever been through, he was in extreme pain after surgery and was on Lortab for 2 weeks after the surgery. They said they wouldn't have to go back in until 9-12 months after to see if any regrowth had occurred. Unfortantley he had recently started having pain and soreness in the same ear again, The doctors are putting him to sleep later on this month to see what is going on in his ear. If anyone has ever had the surgery and has had complications after can you please let me know what your symptons where? I'm still new at this and have been researching every day online to find out information. Thank you.
