Has anyones child ever had a sty on their eyelid and had to have surgery to remove it?

If so how was the outcome? Was it painful for the child? Have they ever developed another one? My son has one one his eyelid and will see a different eye doctor to have it removed next week. I am trying to prepare myself on how things will go for him.

  • My child didn't have one, but I did not too long ago. It was painful when they were doing the anesthesia - they just did a local, but might do a general for a child? But while they actually removed it, no. I never developed another one.
