Surgery for perforated ear drum

Q: One of my ear got perforated due to infection two year back. There has been no discharge from ear since then. Now, due to cold, I feel there is congestion/infection in my ear. Next week I am undergoing tympanoplasty surgery but my doctor said surgery can be done, even when it is infected. My question is can that be done and whether I have to undergo tympanoplasty or mastoidectomy with tympanoplasty? Will it improve my moderate hearing loss?

A:For simple perforation of the drum tympanoplasty is done in which conductive type of hearing loss can also be improved. Results are better if surgery is done in a dry ear. It can also be done if the discharge is water colored and mucoid but not if frank pus is coming.
