Eardrum perforation

Around 2 months back, sudden pain in ear after water strikes eardrum, consulted doctor, she said hole in ear drum, panic situation and started medicine. It started healing but the healing rate is very slow,so doctor recommends surgery for hole repair, i just don't know why and how this happened and now surgery, it's horrible and cost effective. I just want to know some cheap and better ways to heal the drum.

Traumatic perforations heal by themselves! Only you should keep the ears dry, no ear drops also.If very small perforations are present the edge of the perforation has to be made raw and a paper patch on it can heal the hole. If not healing now a days endoscopic ear surgeries are done which do not require major hospital and also the cost is less. Visit an ENT FIRST.
