Has anyone had a young child that had to have an adenoidectomy for cronic ear infections?

My son is 15 months old and has had more than one ear infections a month for the last 9 months, 13 infections to be exact. I am so sick of hearing "he'll just have to grow out of them". Also he's had tubes since September of 2008, and still has constant ear infections. So he had 6 ear infections from April to October then had his tubes put in and after his tubes had 7 infections.

  • DD had one with her first set of tubes in - at about 20 mos. She was fine for a bit, but then had to continue going back to have tubes put in until she was 6. She still suffered ear disorders and throat issues, but we were always told "it's normal." Then, at age 15, we finally took her to an ENT after fighting with her ped. to find out that her tonsils were the culprit all along. So, she had them out. I would recommend you ensure that your baby's tonsils are good. DD's had pockets (never formed right) and she literally developed stones in them, which caused sinus/ear issues all this time. Don't wait until your baby is a teen - it's way worse to recover.
