For those whose children have had their tonsils removed, how old were they when they had the operation?
DD was born with fluid on both ears - failed newborn hearing screening and all subsequent hearing tests and we were told she had moderate to severe hearing loss. She had grommets inserted at 8.5 months and her hearing went to normal levels (such a relief!). She's been sick A LOT this year (so from 13-19 months) with many bouts of tonsillitis and infected adenoids causing a constant cough - so many lots of antibiotics. It greatly affects her sleep. We saw the ENT 2 weeks ago and he said one of the grommets was almost out and there was fluid in that ear again. So she's going to have new grommets and adenoids out - is it worth having tonsils out at the same time or is she too little for that? ENT said her tonsils are very big so he'll look at that after 2. Is 2 years old the general rule? Would rather get it all over and done with for her sake.
Thanks for reading.
