What do you guys know about adenoid removal and the reasons they're done?
My mil is the type of person who gets an idea in her head and will not let it go until she is proven right.
6 months ago she asked me "have you ever had alyssa's adenoids checked? she sounds SO stuffed up" "well....she's had a cold so she sounds a little stuffy..." "no no she sounds all nasally and you just dont hear it because you're always with her"
so being the mom who wants to be sure everything's ok with her kids, i looked it up on google before running to the dr cause i know nothing about it... and every single site i found lists reasons kids should get theirs removed...and my daughter meets NONE of the requirements. i kinda just forgot about it after that, didn't call the dr. cause i didn't feel it was anything to be concerned over. but of course when we saw my husband's parents the other day she asked about it again. i know she will not drop this and i forgot what all the symptoms were so i couldn't really tell her she was crazy. But i'm searching today and still don't feel like my daughter has any reason to talk to a dr. but mil wont drop it until i do bring it up to our pediatrician (and when i do ask at her well check and he says there's nothing to be concerned over she will say he's wrong) I don't feel like i can win this one lol. But i think i might print out some of these medical websites i'm reading and show them to her so maybe she will drop it. although i don't think she will!!
