ENT Specialist 's  Response
hello. if your child is having snoring and breathing difficulty, it is better to get the adenoids removed. it is a very safe and common surgery, you don't have to worry. side effects include bleeding and damage to the eustachian tube ( tube connecting your ear and nose) , but these are very rare, relax!
