Burst ear drum

Hi Doc In November last year, I burst my ear drum in my left ear. I consulted and ENT and they decided the best option was to let it heal by itself. It is now the end of January, and although I am convinced my heating is much improved, I am still not convinced it is where it used to be. After seeing the ENT, I went to an audiologist and had my hearing tested. I then returned two weeks later and there was a definite improvement. Should I visit the audiologist again? Should I be patient for a little longer? If it isn't 100% at this stage what more can be done?
