    Unhappy nose surgery for a 11 year old???

    undefinedundefinedI have a 11 year old daughter(be 12 in few weeks)and she has bad sinus problems.At 1st her doctor said he wouldnt do surgery on her til she was 15 because it could stop her nose from growing but now after testes he says it has to be done soon because she has broken her nose(which we didnt know)and her nose on the right side is blocked and said the left side isnt much better and thats why she is keeping sinus infections.I like to know if any1 has a child or knows a child that has had this done at her age and if they had any problems.Im so worried i will do wrong thing because if i let them do the surgery it could stop her nose from growing and if i dont do it she will just keep getting sick.thanks alot for any replays i can get

    i've never heard of having surgery on your sinuses causing your nose to stop growing....many children have nasal surgeries and i never heard of that being a "complicaton".....she probably needs her sinus to be drained which will help with breathing and infections..good luck

    the doc said he would have to fix the bone in her nose because its blocking thats why he said it could stop the growing of her nose because of resetting her nose..thanks
