Thank you for your question.
A cholesteatoma is as you know caused by abnormally high serum cholesterol levels. This has more serious complications than cholesteatoma , the obvious being arteriosclerosis , affecting specifically the heart. I am more concerned that the child is under the care of an expert endocrinologist . Once the cholesterol levels are under control the recurrence of the cholesteatomas should cease . Having frequent anesthetic is detrimental to your liver, but I expect the anesthetist will be monitoring this, please discuss this with him/her in person.
