So DS who is about to turn 5 needs his tonsils and adenoids out quite urgently. But when he saw the doctor they also did a hearing test including pressure test which showed fluid behind the ears and mild hearing loss. So they want to schedule grommets being put in at the same time.
My issue is he's never had a problem with his hearing or ears before. I had it tested last December by Child Health and they said it was fine. But would they have done a pressure test?
Also he was getting sick (we now know) the day of the test so would a cold have meant he had fluid behind his ears?
His language has always been great, no delays. Lately he does seem to ask us to repeat ourselves a lot though!
I just don't want it done unnecessarily after one test.
Any advice please?
