Not just for 2 year olds

I've had problems with fluid in my ears for almost 2 years. It used to come and go but for the last several months it has stayed. I've tried just about everything in the book to take care of this problem but nothing seems to work. I was at the doctor tonight because the problem is getting worse. He told me that I have the classic signs of "eustachian tube dysfunction" which pretty much means that the tubes that lead from my ears to my throat aren't working right and can't let any fluid drain out. He gave me some nasal spray along with a decongestant to try but didn't sound hopeful that it would work. The next step would be to have tubes put in my ears. Brenton is going to have a heyday with this one. :)
