  • My son was five and a half yo and he recooperated fast he was daystay. My middle one my oldest daughter had to stay overnight because of a separate illness combined with tonsils adenoids and she did jumping jacks in bed the day after her surgery, she was three and a half years old. The youngest my second daughter was also a day stay and she was 8 years old and she had a horrible bad bad time re cooperating. She almost had to be hospitalized again because she refused to eat for almost two weeks. I was on the phone constantly with my surgeon.

  • For a 5 yr old it should only be a couple of days. For my 16 yr old it was a week. LOL
