I do have experience here. My oldest son had repeat ear infections which started when he was an infant. Because of the fluid his hearing was not 100%. He did get tubes 2 different times. I recommend you do the surgery as soon as the doctors say its time. My sons speech never developed correctly because he could not hear during the most critical time. His speech was so delayed that he did not say his first word until he was about two..and the word was not even an understandable word. It was more of a sound. One thing his ENT told me was to never let him lay down with a bottle because fluid can build up in the ear drum and also to have his head elevated when he slept because it keeps the pressure off the eardrums. His speech is still not 100% even with 7 years of speech therapy.
