Hi Doctor, My daughter has heavy Running nose and breathing
My daughter has heavy Running nose and breathing through the mouth and snoring due to nasal blockage. We have consulted ENT and he suggested Surgery for Adenoids and Tonsils.
I am attaching latest x-ray which we have taken yesterday. So can you please suggest should we go for surgery?
If yes do we need surgery for both Adenoids and Tonsils. Please Suggest us.
Thanks in advance.
