Hi, I was just wondering if anyone's child have had their adenoids grow back for a 3rd time? My son, Spencer 2 & half years, 1st had his adenoids & tonsils taken out at 16 months old due to sleep apnea & being constantly snotty & just generally unwell, he then had them out for a 2nd time last November as he was showing the same symptoms, the ENT surgeon said they where even bigger this time round & couldn't get over the size of them in the space of time they had grown back! Now I'm afraid he is showing the exact same symptoms & I just wondered if anyone else had a child who's had them grow back for 3rd time? I did ask the ENT specialist last time he had them out & did say it was extremely rare but didn't rule it out! Spencer is a special needs child who has a very rare genetic condition called Xq28 duplication syndrome so nothing is impossible with him bless his heart!! Also if there's any parent out there with a child with the same syndrome? Would be nice to talk to someone in the same boat! Thanks for listening girls & guys! My 1st time posting on here so I'm sorry if I haven't got it quite right yet lol!! smile

Looking at dr Google it's quite possible the adenoids have grown back for a third time. Apparently it's impossible to remove all adenoid tissue in a very young child.

I am surprised they were taken out so early. Ds had his removed at three and a half years old.

I've seen the same results on Dr Google but just wondered if anyone else had experienced this?! It was very young to take them out but he had a very serious case of sleep apnea which the Drs where very concerned to the point that he had the sleep study on the Monday & was in on the Friday for surgery lol! He was operated on at 6 weeks old for 2 hernias! Like I said Spencers body is very unpredictable!!! Bless him!
