my 22 month old son just had his Adenoids removed on Wed. Now instead of actually cutting them out. I guess they use a laser to shrink them.
When they brought him into the recovery room after the surgery I noticed a foul odor on his breath. I figured it was from the surgery, as I'm sure that the shrinking of flesh and the blood, would create a smell, and it would go away.
it has not gone away, but has actually gotten stronger, I have wiped his mouth out with a damp cloth.. brushed the back of his tongue and cheeks. There is no discharges from either nose or ears, and no swelling that I can see. and yet the smell persists.
I was wondering if any one else has observed the same effect from this surgery and what helped for getting rid of the odor.
