I flushed a piece of ear wax out of my left ear this morning that was bigger than a pea. HTH
LWP said:Be glad it came out the easy way. I had some earwax harden in my ear from rolling in cold water on a winter kayaking trip which I apparently made worse by trying to q-tip what I thought was just water out of my ear. Apparently it trapped some river water inside. Didn't realize it at the time, thought I was just a little stuffy from cold weather boating. A few days later I had a nasty upper respiratory infection and was woke up during the night to really intense ear pain and blood running out of my ear. The inner ear infection had perforated my eardrum or something like that. The doctors visit the next day was fun. Yelling or saying stop wasn't an option with a cute nurse in the room but I swear I left finger marks in the metal chair arms while they were trying to dig out the wax.
