Hi - advice pls. My 4 yr old ds had grommets put in about 3 wks ago. Since then he has a hacking cough day & night (worse at night). We just thought it was a bug or something, but it's going on & on. Could it be the grommets? Has anyone else had a similar experience?
No we didn't get this with dd1's gromits but remembering the discription of how the ears and throat are conected I would go to GP about this. Did your DS just have grommets? DD had her adenoids out at the same time and they were apparently quite enlarged.
SamK - we have experience of grommits here but no cough (?). It could be that the grommits are draining the rubbish though and the cough is similar to post nasal drip (like catarrh) where the rubbish is draining down the back of the throat. It would cause a cough, particularly at night. Or something to do with the GA - maybe speak to your GP.
