Pain Stop is no longer recommended after a tonsillectomy due to the high risk of bleeding. You will need to scroll down but it says
http://www.nps.org.au/medicines/pain...reliever-syrupshould not be given to children under 6 years of age after surgery to remove tonsils or adenoids to treat sleep apnoea.
Our ENT was very much against it. We used Panadol only.

Oxycodone for us.
I insisted on having it as a backup. My DD can't have nurofen anyway due to her heart condition.
So we used panadol... and oxycodone if necessary. Pain will peak on days 4-5 when scabs form on the open wound. And again around day 12ish when the scabs fall off.
If your kiddos can eat regular food that helps even more with healing.

I had pain stop at the ready but DD (4 at the time) didn't need it. She woke in heaps of pain so they pumped her full of Peth initially, but after a sleep she only needed panadol.
Try Dymadon paracetamol. It has the same consistency as Nurofen and my kids much prefer it.

You said every form of panadol did you mean every form of paracetamol? My girls hate panadol but like dymadon and the chemists own versions. The nurse will come round with it in hospital, maybe they will take it from him/her? Then they might get used to it?
We were prescribed oxy but never used it, the paracetamol was enough. You need the pain killers so they can eat while helps them heal. Otherwise a scab forms.
I stocked up on foods they loved. Didn't worry about nutrition. Anything to get them eating. My DD got a happy meal with a thick shake (unheard of the get both ) and still talks about it to this day 😄😄.
I'm with your hubby. I would make the drive home. You want your own bed when you're sick. There's also a window when the hospital drugs are still in your system. My DD shared my bed for a few nights. She recovered sooo well and quickly, I think because she's an eater.

Yes, sorry I should have said paracetamol. Thanks for everyone's advice, fingers crossed all goes smoothly!

Pain stop has codeine and paracetamol in it but is the consistency of panadol brand so may not be suitable if your kids don't like panadol.
I would avoid being prescribed oxycodone and unfortunately nurofen won't be allowed.
My ds3 master 5yr old is having his tonsils and adenoids removed in August.

My son had his tonsils and adenoids out last year and his Dr sent us home with Panadol every 6hrs and nurofen every 8hrs round the clock for 2 weeks. We had no issues with bleeding.
