  • No dairy at first. It sticks to the sores and increases mucous production. Nothing red colored. You don't want to confuse it with blood r vice versa.. That's what I remember from mine.

  • 4 year old granddaughter has it done twice actually. The second time, the tonsils had started to grow back. The first time everything went smoothly and they sent her home the same day. The second time, it was more complicated because of her tubes being redone and all, so they kept her overnight. She wasn't too bad.

  • My son had this done and doesn't catch colds or get infections like he use to. He sleeps much more soundly!
