My 6 year old had her tonsils and adenoids removed a week ago. How long did it take your child to stop hurting?

I personally had my adenoids removed, but that was about 20 years ago. It took approximately 2 weeks for me to be back to normal.



If he doesn't have a fever or bleeding from the mouth, chances are he is okay. If you are unsure, you might want to have him checked soon.

My son has his done at 7 and he was fine the next day eatting normally. Within a couple of days he did not have any pain relief. The mouth heals quicker than any other part of the body. If your child is still in pain then may be they have an infection. Go back to the gp and get them looked at. After a week things should be much better.
