12 years ago I was treated for a chronic ear infection. I had to have surgery to fix my ear drum and a mastoidectomy for the drainage. I also had gangrene. Two weeks ago I noticed my hearing was decreased and my ear felt full. I was getting dark wet ear wax when I cleaned my ear. Now my ear is draining greenish yellow pus. head aches, pain on the affected side and hearing loss loosing my balance/dizziness. I am on po amoxicillin, but am worried that it may not be enough d/t my previous history.View Thread
