My son is 19 months and has had way too many ear infections (at least 12 since birth, at LEAST!) and is going to the ENT next week. My guess and his pediatricians guess is TUBES. THe only thing I worry about is the anesthesia. ((just a mom worry I guess)). What should I expect at his appointment, and what should I expect the surgery to be like and my son to act like the week after? Thanks!Answer Question

oh yeah... and at the Children's hospitals here in Georgia it is common practice for your child to be sleepy, but not asleep when the nurse takes them back to the ER. Generally parents are not in the room when the child is fully sedated.
I also forgot to say that the ENT will come talk to you after the surgery is done.

oops! Just realized part of my first post was cut off.... Your son may be sleepy for the rest of the day after surgery but the next day he should bounce right back as if nothing happened at all. Good Luck!!
