Hi--are you saying that you actually have a blocked/scarred down Eustachian tube?

Thank you. I feel I am not understanding my husband's not wanting to fly on an air plane because his eustachian tube has scar tissue from an infection he had a few years ago He thinks the air pressure in the plane will cause pain while taking off and landing. I will try to get him to an an ear specialist for consultation. I'm sorry I can not do a better job over this issue.

Thank you.

With Regard,

That's OK--are you saying that he has a continuous problem with the ear feeling stuffy and as yet he hasn't had an ENT look at him?
