My son is 2.5 years old. i took him to an ENT specialist as he is suffering from allergy. when i mentioned that my kid was snoring, the doctor advised an X-ray for investigation on adenoids. The report read moderate adenoid hypertrophy with mild indentation on naso-pharyngeal column . however my kid never suffered any sinus infections.But his nose is wet and has very thin mucous discharge which is clear.he has little wheezing. And nowadays he is not snoring but very rarely he keeps his mouth open. He sleeps for about 10-11 hrs in a day. Is it true that if the child doesn t snore and doesn t breathe with mouth then it means that there is not much problem with his adenoids?

Adenoids and Tonsils in 21 months old son - advice needed Hello Doctor , My son is 21 months old and he is suffering with wheezing and severe breathing problem for more than a month now. He has a history of several frequent infections. X-ray taken yesterday has shown that he has adenoids 4+ and tonsils 4+ which are obstructing air passage severely. Doctor adviced to go for surgery soon and he told us that there are new techniques where entire tonsils are not removed but only a portion of it. Is there an alternative? Is the surgery really dangerous in the longer run as many people say?
