hello, my daughter is 3 and she's had fevers since she was 4 weeks old . it was very tough to see our daughter feel and go through this and no dr.'s had answers except for she is going to b a " high fever child" but my wife and i knew something was finally we were sent to childrens hospital here in long island ,new york and she was diagnosed with pfapa, and thank god for prednisone to keep the fever episode from 7 days to 2 days. plus she has asthma so it got pretty sketchy when the fevers would reach as high as 106. she was diagnosed last fall but still gets episodes every 30 to 50 days now because of the prednisone. but my wife and i have been reading a lot of articles about pfapa , and a lot of the articles talk bout the tonsilectomy really being affective. but the dr.s r telling us it's the last resort but we would rather just get them out now while she's still young , my question to you is , did you really see everything go away? we are really thinking strongly bout getting this done. what do you think
