my daughter 51/2yrs old underwent adenoid removal & myringotomy 3months back. As white fluids started flowing & my daughter complained about pain, the Dr said the gormets reacted to her & removed the same. Still the nasal block & poor hearing started. I was advised for a CT scan. Now the CT scan results are as below: 1. INFLAMATORY SOFT TISSUE OPACITY SEEN IN THE BILATERAL ATTIC, ADITUS, MIDDLE EAR CANAL, HYPOTYMPONUM AND BILATERAL ANTRUM S/O BILATERAL OTOMASTOIDITIS 2. Mild mucosal thickening of left maxillary both frontal and sphenoid sinus 3. Paradoxical curvature of left middle turbunate 4. enlarged adenoids. What should I do now? I am very much concerend

Brief Answer: Reduced the adenoid size Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query and CT scan findings. It suggests that your daughter suffering from the enlarged adenoids after removal of it. Why this condition occurs only after 3 months of surgery? It may be either residual or recurrence. For this consult your surgeon for better explanation. For better hearing, it is absolute necessary to reduce the size of the adenoid either by conservative management or again surgery. For better opinion consult your doctor. At this age ear surgery and nasal surgery are not recommended. For nasal blockage and sinusitis your daughter goes for conservative management such as---> 1. Steam inhalation five times a day. 2. Nasal decongestant and systemic decongestant. 3. Nasal steroid. Hope this answers your query. If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query. Regards
