  • When did she have them out? If it's been less than 2 weeks, I wouldn't think she is just having some pain and that's normal. My son actually got strep a week after he had his tonsils and adenoids removed. She could also have an ear infection or fluids built up behind the tubes, it does happen. A call to the doctor may not hurt. Hope she feels better soon!!

  • My DD had her tonsils & adenoids out, and while her throat was healing she was getting crabbier and in more pain. We ended up taking her to the chiropractor and she was a whole new child - during surgery that had grabbed her around and worked so hard or something that she was really out of whack. She went from not sleeping and in major pain to sleeping 12 hour nights and not needing any more pain meds after just 1 adjustment.
