Just looking for reassurance. My 7 year old had her adenoids removed a week ago and her snoring seems to be worse. I'm getting a little concerned as her snoring actually wasn't this bad previous to the surgery. Am I being a little bit paranoid and haven't given enough time for healing? My son has his adenoids and tonsils removed and the difference in snoring was obvious the first night.
Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hmm maybe it's due to the healing? Was snoring the reason for the surgery?
My DS had adenoids and tonsils removed and it improved straight away. But the tonsils were his main issue,.they were so big they were touching.
Are your daughter's tonsils large?

Swelling and mucous build up probably

My DS had adenoids & tonsils removed in feb.
We were told to expect snoring to be worse the first few days due to swelling but gradually get better over the next couple of weeks.

My daughter had hers done last year. I was told snoring would still happen for a few weeks after due to swelling and healing.
So from my experience I would say that is normal.

Scabs and swelling still causing obstruction I think.

You guys rock. Thank you so much. She didnt have tonsils removed as well as they were not big. She suffered a lot of congestion in her nose and was a mouth breather. She was on steroid sprays for a while and I wasn't comfortable continuing with them so the ENT suggested adenoid removal.
I really hope she improves soon as she shares a room with her brother.
Thanks again for all the reassurance. It's made me so much more relaxed about it.
