Brief Answer: yes let us wait and watch Detailed Answer: Hi, Yes I remember. Meta spray is s steroid spray used to reduce inflammation in upper airways. It will also prevent further attacks. But not all will respond! We have to watch the response. We have to keep the options for surgery open based on his various parameters. do not worry. He seems to be very normal in the photo. Reg in drawing only in the nights ,it should improve when adenoids regress. It will not be for ever. God bless Dr Uma

Brief Answer: yes Detailed Answer: Hi, Clinically there is nothing in heart as per your doctors. Only way to prove is by doing an echo cardio gram. But it is not needed as your child is alright in the day time.. So do not worry. Am happy that I am of some help to you! Good luck Dr uma
