DS has had tubes for 18 months (at his well visit last month they did confirm they are still in). In that time he has still had a few ear infections, none with ear drainage. Yesterday/today his left ear has been draining but he is not sick or in pain (unlike the other times). I really don't want to have to bring him in to the doctor, it's always such a nightmare, so wanted advice on this- doesn't the draining mean the tubes are working as they should?
