Thank you for your query.

I am not surprised to know that your son has enlarged adenoids. This enlargement is very normal at this age as he develops his immunity. I would like to wait for a year or so and re-evaluate the child. In the interim I would correct his anaemia and ensure that he has a healthy normal diet so that he develops immunity.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
