  • My DD had this done when she was 4. But she also had her tonsils and adenoids out. If it is just tubes, it is in and out, and they will be fine. Don't worry. I would recomend having the personal ear plugs made. They are around 50 bucks a piece but worth the money. The crap you get at the stores don't work very well.

  • I had it done when I was about 9 or 10 and it was a very good thing. I dont remember any bad side effects from it, but I do remember the pain I had before.
