Hello ladies. I'm a new mom to a beautiful 13 month old baby boy. He has to have surgery in December to remove his adenoids. The doctor said he will see on that day if the tonsils have to come out also. I'm sooooo nervous. Has anyone experienced this with their little one? What was your experience?

Thanks so much for sharing your experience. It has made me a little more comfortable. I have also heard that his breathe will smell horrible. How bad was it?

My daughter had to have her adenoids and tonsils removed at the same time. She was about the same age. She did great! We were supposed to spend the night in the hospital because we lived 3 hours away but she was doing so well they sent us home that night. The younger you have it done the faster they heal. She had constant ear infections and colds prior to having this done. She hasn't had an ear infection since. She did have some pain that night but they sent us home with pain medication. The next day she was running around as if nothing happened.
