Adenoids and tubes for EJ

We saw the ENT. She debated on his tonsils because I guess they are large (but he hasn't ever had throat infections). She's taking his adenoids and putting tubes in his ears. We go May 19th.

Good luck EJ!!!! Hopefully it makes everything better for him in the end. When i was a kid they routinely took adnoids and tonsils together...... you would think that this would still be done so that another surgery isnt needed in the future (just my thoughts, lol)

I had both of mine taken out at the same time and would probably opt to have both taken out from my kids. That's just my opinion...take it for what its worth!

Russ got his adenoids out and his tubes in at the same time. I didn't even think about tonsils until other people were asking why they didnt do those too.

Nowadays they don't usually take out the tonsils unless there is a problem - I had mine done at the same time though. Hope EJ feels better!!

honestly I would have argued if she wanted to take his tonsils knowing he hasn't had any tonsil issues yet. I know they are all usually a package deal, but I'd rather only fix what's broken. Thanks for the good thoughts Smile

Austin gets his tubes on the 27th. Dr said he wasn't touching adnoids or tonsils. They usually don't worry about those until 18 months or later and believes if we take care of the ears they wont be an issue.

Stephen got his 2nd set of tubes a couple weeks ago. He is a much happier boy! His ENT said if he continues to have ear issues after this set comes out, we can talk about adnoids and tonsils. Hope surgery goes well and he feels better!
