I finally got the date for my DS1's long awaited adenoidectomy. He is 11yo. He has mild Asperger's, a bit of SPD (very very oversensitive to pain), and anxiety. So I am a little bit nervous about how he will go.
He is to turn up at 11am, and will be done in the afternoon. Don't they need to fast from the night before? He'll be starving!
His pre admission is in a couple of weeks, so I will have more answers then, but I just wanted to hear some others experiences about the procedure, about their pain levels afterwards, was it just day surgery, how quickly were they back into normal life like school, sport etc. And what do they eat and for how long?
According to a couple of friends their kids bounced back pretty much that same day, so I hope it doesn't seem like I'm worrying too much, but it's just that I know my child and I know he'll have lots of concerns coming up so I want to be able to answer his questions and reassure him.
I'd also like to hear about what was their issues with their enlarged adenoids and if these resolved after surgery?
