You seem to have had failed tympanoplasty which is common with ear surgeries as many times post operative infections can lead to failures. You may need to undergo tympanoplasty with Mastoidectomy procedure. Usually nose surgeries are not usually necessary
Next Steps
Consult nearby experienced ear surgeon for more information about the surgery and it's outcomes
