You can do tube, tonsils and adenoids all at once and little kids bounce back within a few days. Find a good pediatric ENT and get an opinion. Keep us posted.

Thanks for the reply sarah. Her second set was taken out in april 2015 and infections started again in october with cold. They haven' t taken adeniods or tonsils. I was planning to ask doctor in my next visit if we have to go for third set. First doctor that we went is not good and helpful. Can both tonsilsand adenoids be taken at the same time? does it hurt my daughter for long time?

IMO I head to Massachusetts, and either go to Mass Gen, or Harvard Medical. It is possible that she is losing the tube as her ears grow, but if that were the case I'd think the infections would stop as well. Has she had her tonsils or adenoids out? Sometimes that tissue can be swollen and prevent drainage in the sinuses and increase pressure in the ears. If she has not had them out and has to have a third go at surgery, if the EENT suggests taking them out, I'd agree. Good Luck.
