    Default As per consultation with the ENT...

    no frenulectomy. For now.

    He said that hers was too thick for him to cut it in office (but then said he would if I really wanted him to). He suggested that the best form of frenulectomy would be to actually cut it in multiple places and fold it under (or something like that) so that it wouldn't fuse back together. And for that, he needs to put her under, so we are talking at least a year. He said that it might not affect dental at all, so he said he'd rather wait and see what happens and bow out and let the dentist handle it when necessary.

    Frusterating, but oh well.

    I think I will bow down now with it and pray she doesn't scare the crap out of me breaking it when she's learning to walk. I'll just have to remember that if she does, the bleeding will stop and it doesn't need an ER visit.

    I am not super familiar with them but Lily's was a posterior, stage 4 and our Dr. cauterized it with a laser. Might you get a second opinion? The Dr. that we went to is highly sought after here and "fixes" what everyone else screws up. It made a huge difference in her ability to eat but if it does not bother Evelyn...maybe is it no big deal?

    Well, it's upper lip tie, not a tongue tie and this was like the 4th opinion.
