Both my ds (5) and dd (3.5) are getting their tonsils out in June (both on the same day). I'm a little bit concerned because our surgeon has said that he will only prescribe panadol as pain relief but both my children vomit straight after taking it (I have tried every brand/flavour). I explained this to the surgeon and he said we may need to look into suppositories (eek!). Apparently nurofen is a no go (due to blood clots needing to form) but I know that my kids respond really well to it and it's the only thing that helps when they have tonsillitis.
Just wanting to know what your child needed in the way of pain relief? Any other tips would be great too?
