My 2 and a half year old daughter has to see an ENT specialist tomorrow as she has had 6 bouts of tonsilitis in 12 months, the latest bout of it was two weeks ago , the doc put her on anti-biotics for 10 days, she started improving a little bit, then on the day after she came off the anti-biotics we had her at the hospital as she woke up screaming in pain and struggling to swallow, the hospital said yes she has tonsilitis?? still or again??? still not sure which one? bacterial or viral? not to know?? put her back on the penicillin and nurofen for pain.
We went back to the local docs yesterday and he has referred me onto the ENT doctor, he thinks she might have to have a tonsillectomy, i know if she has to have them out then she does but I am a bit concerned at her being 2 and a half and how she would cope with the pain etc, has anyone else been through this?? would love to hear from you!
