I can't suggest a surgeon there but I can tell you it was the best thing we ever did for our granddaughter. Before the surgery her ears were constantly infected, she constantly had strep throat and brochitis, Just really sick...ALL the time. The P.E. tubes..no big deal..keep water out of the ears. The adnoid removal, as another poster said cause really nasty breath while it is healing. The tonsils...become more challenging. It hurts to swallow so they try to avoid it. The problem is you HAVE to make them drink or they will get dehydrated quickly. This may sound odd...but in nursing school we were taught that swallowing after throat surgery actually reduces pain. Why? Because the pain is not only from the raw tissue..it is from spasm. When you swallow the spasm stops. Popsickles, pudding, jello. Milkshakes are what kept my son (he was 14) and my g-daughter (she was 3) going.
