  • Yes my son had it done when he was around 3. He was a trooper. It only lasted a few days, and it was mostly just eating soft food. He acted great. The younger they are the better they do.

  • I had my tonsils removed and i guess i just bounced back. My son had tubes in his ears and he also just bounced back. Good luck!

  • My 6 yr old had it done when he was 4. He ate a lot of Jello and Popsicles. He bounced back quickly. Not much to it.

  • Yes, he was about 10 and it took him a week to get over it. He was in so much pain. I wish I would of had his twin brother taken out too. I fear he needs his out he is now 13 and keeps a step throat. I hope your little feels better soon. It is an awful not to be able to make them feel better soon.

  • My SS had his removed 3 years ago at Easter. The day after the surgery (which was out-patient) he was almost back to himself. It took about 3 days for his throat to not feel sore.
