When I was young my mother took me to our GP and they flushed my ears with warm saline water and a big metal syringe. I had heavy ear wax build up.

I remember seeing the chunk of ear wax come out, but I am now being told that it is impossible for liquid to be flushed or to travel from one ear canal to the other.

I know what they did to me, so I'm confused on why I'm being told that it is impossible. Did I miss something? Confused
