First of all you have to keep your ear free from water & soap. Secondly you have to prevent any indirect flow due to common cold or allergy. These are the two most important issues which needs your attention. Use a vaseline coated cotton in the ear during bath etc and take your already prescribed anti cold or anti allergic medication accordingly. Don't lift heavy weights and don't blow your nose frequently. This should dry up your ear substantially. Then you can have surgery done. If the discharge is not infected, surgery can be done in a healthy wet ear also.
