Default can a cat live with ear polyps?

my cat had an extremely foul odor coming from ear, I took him to vet and the vet said he has polyps. he said that surgery would be the best route and that it was gonna run about a 1,000 dollars and even worse, it has a good chance of returning in as little as a month. he hasnt had any other symptoms whatsoever other than the smelly ear. the vet gave me antibiotics and what not. my question is , how long can a cat live with this thing? if left untreated, whats the worst that could happen? im a college student so cant just throw down 1,000 dollars with the possibility of having to do this again in a few months. should i wait for more symptoms to occur before considering this surgery? will the polyps get worse? or is there a chance that a stinky ear is as far as it will go? as he seems very healthy and playful. thanks in advance for your replies...
