    And just to add that just because a dr or nurse recommends something doesn't mean it's the best option.
    Do you know how much time pharmacists spend talking to drs re a script they have written? No offence to drs but they aren't always right.
    Fair point.
    Just as a side note, I have a Bachelor of Pharmacy as well as a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery, and extensive experience in Anaesthetics. So, am fairly comfortable with my pharmacology.
    But, this is not a p!ssing contest...I am very pleased all has worked out well for the OP

    Just spoke with the surgeon again and he is happy to give ds a script for pain stop but he didn't want dd to have it because of how big her adenoids were and possible sleep apnea issue so he has prescribed her with tremadol (?). Hopefully we don't need either, they are coping fine with panadol (baby panadol has worked, thanks for the tip @J37) and nurofen at the moment!

    Are they letting her take nurofen? They told me that could cause haemorrhaging. I would have much preferred nurofen to endone.

    Yes she is having nurofen/Panadol. They were giving it as a just in case but have just informed us that they don't have any in stock so we will just be sticking with Panadol/nurofen and will see our gp if she goes downhill once home.

    My son had Oxycodone for pain relief after his T&A surgery.
    Then on day 2 onwards he was just having Panadol - nothing else (we did have Oxycodone to bring home but he didnt need it).
    Maybe ask if PainStop would be okay (it is Paracetamol and Codeine).

    Best of luck!

    My little guy had his tonsils out 2 weeks ago and had panadol and nurofen for the first 7 days, nil pain relief thereafter.

    The surgeon did prescribe endone but didn't use it as ds was doing fine.
    Our pharmacist advised against using nurofen so I called the surgeon who assured me it was ok to use. There is conflict around it.

    This thread has been great. My DD goes in for T & A removal tomorrow so it's been good to read what others have found useful.

    My little one won't take anything but nurofen since her op, my q is 5-6 hours ok to give nurofen?

    Is it an issue to give it less than 6?
