Elibean just to let you know ds had op went ok had a few upsets but in general he is doing brilliantly. Im amazed even straight after the op you can see a big difference. Doctor said for his age and size his adnoids and tonsils were massive there should be a big improvement
ds is doing fine he started to eat weve had mostly toast and pasta and yoghurt he wanted choclate buttons and jelly babies which I didnt really want to give him but he was crying his eyes out so I m afraid i gave in. His sleeping is back to normal there is a big difference no snoring or funny noises I have noticed that his voice has changed is it because is still sore or is it because his tonsils were removed I dont know has your dc voice change how he doing
Thats goods bless her sleeping for a long period I ve never seen ds sleep more than 2 hours at the most 3. Im so happy for you lets hope they get well soon. Did you have eating problems before the op I did and Im hoping he will start eating as soon as he is well
We had awful eating and sleeping problems pre-op, in that she ate very very little. I know its tonsil related, because she used to be a good eater - and when well, a good sleeper. The last few months she's not been more than 3-4 hours without waking up, at the very most, often less.
She had severe sleep apnoea, and found eating hard work. Summer was better, some of the time, but since October (colds etc) its been pretty grim.
I'm thrilled with the results, everyone here told me it was the best thing they ever did, and I can see why. I really hope you get the same benefits!
Don't expect too much from the eating for at least a week post-op, I found offering tiny snacks often, in front of a DVD (she was too tired/sore to cope with sitting at table), worked best. I also gave her mini cornettos and apple juice ice-lollies during the swelling stage (first few days post-op) as well as offering toast and crisps and other 'rough' food, because they clearly soothed her, and hydrated her. The food she's wanted has changed according to the healing process - some days she hated milk and all dairy, I guess it tasted weird.
