    Default Adenoids/grommets and time off school

    My DS is due to have grommets put in as well as his adenoids taken out next week.

    For those whose children have had the same operation I just wondered what the recommendation was for having time off school?

    I'll ask the ENT on the day but just thought I'd ask beforehand to see if anyone else was aware.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks, I've been looking up a few online pages and they say 5-7 days which I thought was a bit extreme.

    Wow, that is a long time! Our surgeon was happy for just the 1 day off after surgery. She just had to be careful not to get bumped (due to potential bleeding). We just asked the teachers to keep her quiet.

    The day of surgery and possibly the next day just due to risk of infection but you'll find your DS will be perfectly fine a few hours after surgery.

    My DS had his adenoids out last year, I think he had it done on a Tuesday, and had the remainder of the week off school, plus the weekend so it was 6 days or so. We were told a week off, due to the risk of him catching a cold or something which could complicate recovery.

    So just an update, DS had his surgery/adenoids on thursday and everything went well. The ENT has advised he needs 2 weeks off school due to risks of bleeding and infection. He and I are already going crazy!

    Wow, the recommendations obviously vary a lot between surgeons. Hopefully his recovery is a smooth one.
