my 7 year old daughter has lost all her hearing in her right year, after a 2 and a half hour appt with the pediatric ear , nose and throat dr. he came to the conclusion that she needs to have a myringotomy and tympanostomy tube placement. A very common procedure, but the thing is, my daughter has very high anxiety with doctors, even for just a checkup, she compleatly stresses out, dentists....forget it, the last dentist almost lost his finger. I was wondering, how can i help to calm my daughter down, to re assure her that doctors arent bad people, they are here to help her. her surgury has not been scheduled yet, and she is already quite wound up about it.
