  • daughter having tonsils out

    My 10yr old is going in friday 4-13 to have her tonsils & adnoids out. We are to be at hospital at 8, surgery is at 10. we will stay the night at hospital. I am stressing on this. I am in pain today.
    She does not like needles are anything! We had a blood test this week and she got hysterical! For the IV they will need to sedate her!!!! Wish us a fast & easy surgery!

        Good luck, hope everything goes well and she doesn't have too many problems with the needles. I have hated needles my whole life and still have problems with them.

        I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
        1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
        2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
        I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

        I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

              My son had his tonsils and adnoids out when he was 8 years old. I was also very nervous, that is I think part of being a mom. I remember when I first got my son to the hospital, they gave him a shot of something that made him real relaxed. Then they took him. He did have alot of pain when he woke up though, and it was real hard for him to swallow. But by the next day, he was doing better. They will give her tylenol or motrin for the pain, likely a liquid one. Also they will want her to be able to drink before she leaves the hospital just to make sure she will be able to hydrate herself.
              My son having his tonsils and adnoids out was the best thing that ever happened. He was able to breathe much, much easier after that. I mean before he had them out, he would snore all the time and always be stuffed up and getting ear infections all the time. He was on antibiotics constantly it seemed. But after everything was removed, it was like the difference between day and night. It helped him so much.
              I am sure your daughter will be fine. Sending good wishes and big hugs your way.

                  Well that is done now!
                  She did really well yesterday. Today is a whole other issue! More pain and discomfort today. They gave her a seditive going in to OR but didn't work fast enough, they tried the iv but her arm but veins just wouldn't go for it!
                  So after they put her out they had to put it into her foot! Ouch!
                  This hospital has a older section which we ended up in and (get this) NO PUBLIC RESTROOM! I had to go the floor below! this was after they had her in her room of course. So when I had family there i was able to do that. Otherwise I just used her bathroom, even though she had a room mate it worked!
                  We had a long night and I am burning. so she is in my bed so off I go to join her. They have her on the tonsil diet and of course we have pain meds for her which she is do, and antibiotics for the next week.
                  BUT NO MORE SNORING! She said it is easier to breathe thru her nose now also! Makes me feel like it was a good thing!
