My Daughter is 9 years old she is having ear problem. We had counsel a Ear specialist he told that she has a hole in her right ear drum and in her left ear there is decay / rottenness on ear bone. He told us that for decay / rottenness we have to do operation in her ear. My question is there remedy in medicine to cure her decay or is it okay to do operation at this age? (Most of time she suffer from cold)

What's doctor is trying say is your daughter is having ear disease known as cholesteatoma. Its dangerous disease and needs to be operated if confirmed. My advise is to take second opinion and go ahead with surgery as there is no other treatment.
