my 4 yr old is having her adenoids removed next Fri, just curious what can i expect in terms of recovery? im not sure if the hospital allows a parent to be with her when she is put under... if yours did, did you do it and how was it? my friend recommended me NOT be with her since i am almost 26 weeks pregnant and have my husband be with her b/c they just go limp and it is scary to see.Answer Question

My son had this adenoids and tonsils removed December 10th. He was in pain after surgery, we could go the holding area for surgery but we could not go when he was being put under. He was allowed his favorite toy and blanket in the OR. They would let him have it until he was asleep. He missed 1 week from school and was able to eat milk shakes, ice cream, juice, Popsicles, etc. Cold stuff is the best. He will go home with pain meds, they will let him wake-up before sending him home, and overall he was fine. He will also be on antibiotics b/c his immune system will be down. You will have a follow-up app to check his throat about 2 weeks after surgery. No drinking out straws for 2 weeks. Btw, my son's dr had pre-op app the day before surgery to go over everything.
