ear pain during bath with ear tubes?

This isn't exactly about hearing loss, but I wasn't sure where to put it, so hope it is okay.

My 4 yo has had ear tubes 2 x in left ear and 1 x in right, with a cyst removal right ear drum. His last surgery was April 2011. He wears molded ear plugs with bath time. He screams a lot if even a tiny bit of water gets in his ears (either one). He screams that it hurts. He is generally pretty tough and rarely cries about bumps etc. His ENT keeps telling me its probably not pain but just that he isnt used to having water in his ears. I have my doubts as it is so not like my son to scream he is in pain. Has anyone else experienced this and what helped? I am trying to figure out any info. Thanks!
