Tonsilectomy and Adenoidectomy: It Worked!

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

For those of you that have been following along at home…

Just over a month ago, our six year old had a tonsilectomy and adenoidectomy, in part because of chronic ear infections. Everything went smoothly on the day of his surgery, and he was home by late afternoon.

All in all, he recovered from the procedure relatively quickly. The low point was a good bit of ear pain on Day Six. While we were warned about this in advance, it was still tough to see him so uncomfortable.

Late last week, I noted that he had come down with a cold without getting an ear infection, suggesting that our problems were solved.

And then…

Over this past weekend we started to wonder. He was really snotty (in a physiological, not behavioral, sense) and we were starting to think that he might be developing an ear infection. Well… He had his one month followup with the ENT specialist on Monday, and there was nothing but good news. No ear infection, and his hearing has improved dramatically due to less fluid in the ears. Awesome.
