Does adenoidectomy cause chronic fuzzy head and lethargy?

Hi, my husband had his adenoids removed about 3 years ago because of recurrent infections. It helped the infections but since the surgery he has had a chronic 'fuzzy head' and lethargy. Could this be a long term side effect from the surgery or could it be something else unrelated?

My husband is 40yrs, 90kg, suffers from dust mite allergy and has lactose and fructose malabsorption.

Hi,

There is less relation between adenoid surgery and lethargy. There can be other reasons - thyroid issue, malnutrition, vitamin deficiency or diabetes. Share more details.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S. R. Raveendran, Sexologist
