DS has suffered from shocking snoring and breathing since birth and often stops breathing when he sleeps (sleep apnoea). After a long run of severe tonsillitis and many sleepless nights we were refered to an ENT surgeon.
Today we went for our second appointment after DS had nasal xrays taken and now our ENT specialist has referred us to some higher specialist because his adenoids and tonsils are so enlarged!
While I want my boy to be better for the first time in his life, we have recently had two family members almost loose their little ones after sudden bleeding out two days after having tonsillectomies. The most recent was only two weeks ago, DS's cousin who is also two end up with he heart stopping during emergency surgery and a few rounds of blood transfusions!
Has anyone had any trouble with this surgery under three years old? How long did the hospital keep them in for?
I don't have a choice of action as without the surgery DS will soon be struggling to breath at all but after seeing the ENT's concern, a little peace of mind of happy endings might ease my worry
Please and thank you xo
