My DD1 is almost 4 and is going in for a Tonsillectomy on Wednesday, I am very nervous about the operation and would rather not do it however she has obstructive sleep apnea and her breathing is horrible while she sleeps so its a must we get it done.
I have been reading that there is a link between this procedure and obesity in children? has anyone had their child gain quite alot of weight after the operation?

Has your child Gained weight after Tonsillectomy?

I had my tonsils out at 7 and gained a bit of weight until i lost it at puberty (I have never gotten above a size 8-10 since). When I look back, I gained weight predominantly because I ate more fatty foods after the op, because I no longer had a constant sore throat and could taste everything. I would suggest that you keep an eye on your DD and monitor how much she eats. I wish my family had done the same for me. Best of luck with her op!

I had a tonsillectomy at 6 years old. I have been slim my whole life and am currently about a small size 10.
I have no doubt your bub will be absolutely fine, I hope it all goes smoothly for both of you!
