Question
Posted : April 30, 2006
My daughter suffered with ear problems when younger and was treated with gromits in both ears. Having tried diving in a pool it appears that she is unable to equalise her ears and suffers extreme pain at depths more than 1m. She is able to free dive in a pool with no problem. Is there anything she could look at to enable her to dive? - Thanks

if she can freedive and equalize ok, then she should be able to dive an do the same,
best she sees a diving doctor to have a look at the ears and come up with a plan for how to best equalise
