Re: Anyone have toddlers with enlarged tonsils?
My son was 2 and a half when he had his tonsils, Adnoids, and a lymph node removed. He has SID so we had a battle on our hands. Luckily, he recovered quickly. We were also given Tylenol with Codeine so he slept most of the first day or two.
The interferred with his abillity to swallow, talk, and breathe. That is why we had them removed. Sometimes the tonsils will carry and infection when the rest of the body seems healthy. This is because the tonsils and adnoids are also a part of the lymphatic system. We have had no problems since their removal and I am glad we went ahead with the surgery. Good luck to you
