Does any one know about sleep apnea in a four year old after the T&A surgery?

My son is 4 and he has been diagnosed with sleep apnea and we did the T&A surgery 3 weeks ago. Just wanting to know when is the snoring going to stop?

  • My son had it and had his removed at 8. He still snores, but it isnt the same. Does it sound the same? Or different? My doctor said some of it was from healing. But hes 17 now and still snores.

  • I would take him in for a check. Make sure everything healed right. I didnt have that experience. Mine snores still, but its not as loud and sounds different. Id want him checked.
