Suggest Treatment For Recurrent Tonsillitis In A Child
Also want to know if adenoids need to be removed along with tonsillitis as for my son we had got tonsillitis removed first and again had to get adenoids removed.
Yes it is advisable to go for tonsillectomy. As for adenoids, only if they are causing problems like obstruction or have become big.
I had gone through your question and understand your concerns that your daughter is having recurrent episodes of tonsillitis.
In chronic adeno-tonsillitis, surgery is the choice. Can be done any time after 3 years of age. Both the procedures (adenoidectomy +tonsillectomy) can be done in single sitting. But adenoidectomy is required only if they are become big and are causing obstruction while breathing. Otherwise tonsillectomy is enough.
