Can you tell me how the surgery and the recuperation process?
After 8 months of ear infection today the dr decide that my son needs tubes on his ear since he is getting worst ear infection. He has been having a fever for 2 days, not eating anything and really winny. They are going to send the referal in the mail and I wanted to know whos the operatrion and whatever you can share on the experience.TIA!
Surgery is fast, no need to worry. The only thing is when he wakes up, he will be groggy and grumpy. When we got home from the surgery he was a bit disoriented, kind of like dizzy. But he slept most of the day and after that everything was great! Been through 2 surgeries with him, no reason to worry, good luck!

Real quick surgery, like ten minutes. He woke up groggy from the anesthesia, but hey who doesn't. Mine also had his adnoids taken out which they may consider if he still has recurring infections. Just be careful not to allow too much water in the ears. they gave my son ear plugs for swimming and bathing. I'd also keep ears covered if they go outside during the winter months. But really there's not much to it.
