Ahhhh. So I go swimming yesterday and they're still blocked this morning. In the past I've had them cleaned out by the nurse at my medical centre WITHOUT the need to do two-three days of ear drops to soften the wax. Because using the drops makes them even more blocked. I ring up Ropata this morning only to be told come back next Tuesday (Monday being a public holiday) after using the drops for 2-3 days, despite telling the receptionist they've cleaned them out without the drops being used before. So I don't know what to do. I want them unblocked today. Waiting a week with the sound of myself breathing and buzzy noises is not going to do me justice, plus blocked ears give me headaches. Any advise? I might even go to the nurse at my dad's GP practise, if they let me.
