View Full Version : 6 year old with blocked tubes

My 6 year old son's ear tubes are blocked, we just found this out on Friday. We are supposed to fly to wdw in 10 days, does anyone know if this will affect him? I can't get him into the ent specalist until June, and then he has to have a hearing test. I didn't know if the cabin pressures could rupture his eardrum with his tubes being blocked. I will buy him ear planes. Any suggestions?

I would call the specialist's office and ask the nurse. She may be able to work him in sooner, or at least give you advice about the plane. Good luck! :hug:

I agree.. call the office and explain that you are leaving and will the plane pressure do damage to his ears.. Hopefully at TruBlu said, they might be able to get you in earlier.
