2 year old post adenoid surgery
I need a little advice or reassurance that my sons post surgery symptoms are normal and I do not need to worry or bring him to ENT.
He had surgery last thursday (today is monday) to have his adenoids removed. All went well with the surgery and his initial recovery in the recovery room. Starting that night, he started waking up in the middle of the night screaming bloody murder. As the nights went on, he would wake up more and more frequently. Saturday and Sunday night were brutal, every 45 minutes, just screaming....I'd go into his room, he'd be sitting up screaming. I would give him his binky, pat his head and he would go back to sleep until the next scream session. He is fine during the day, but during his 1 nap at daycare, he woke up screaming again, and they could barely get him down, once they did, he slept for a little bit longer. He doesnt talk much so he cannot communicate what is wrong.
He is on amoxacillan (spelling is so wrong) and OTC Tylenol during the day and Tylenol with Codeine as needed for night. I tried both giving and not giving him the tylenol with codeine at night and he woke either way.
Please help with either a similar story or advice.
How long should I give this before I call? Is this normal
