My 22 month old son is supposed to have adnoids and tonsils removed in three weeks. He has sleep breathing problems and his adnoids and tonsils are enlarged. However, he also has asthma and they are thinking the T&A procedure might help with those sypmtoms but it also puts him at more risk for airway obstruction during surgery. Doctors told us they would remove but utlimately it is up to us. There are of course benefits and risks involved. Can anyone share their experience with procedure at this age? We are worried and want to do what is best for son. Thanks!
