8 year old and adenoids removed

Denise - posted on 03/13/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 8 year old daughter had her adenoids removed 6 days ago. She is still taking her pain medicine and seems to be in a lot of pain. It's especially worse at night and she is waking up crying with pain (at least twice a night). Her breath is pretty bad too, but I think it's normal. Any ideas or suggestions? Should she still be in that much pain 6 days later??? Thanks so much for any help.

Yes. It is very painful. I had my tonsils out at 16, and it took me 2 weeks before I could even swallow my own spit. The older they are when they get these procedures, the longer it takes to heal. Of course, if you are concerned at all, call the doctor. Check her temp also to make sure she does not have a fever.
