    I wouldn't rush in to have tonsils out to be honest. The recovery for our daughter was pretty intense but in saying that, it has made a difference to her health. Based on what your GP has noted it sounds like it may be needed though. You should be able to have a full discussion about it with your ENT and to feel entirely comfortable about the decision. Could you possibly have a follow-up phone consult?
    We went to Perth ENT centre, but saw someone else.

    Our DD (4 at the time), had her tonsils, adenoids and turbinates out last October due to the results of a sleep study that showed she has the worst case of OSA her sleep physician had ever seen. We went to a sleep doctor first, because our GP initially referred us straight to an ENT, but we wanted to try CPAP first, however she was retaining massive amounts of carbon dioxide in her sleep as well.
    We saw the surgeon and her surgery was a week later. We still believe she has a sleep disorder, but her sleep physician refused another sleep study (no cost to us), because she isn't having apnea's anymore or snoring....
