hi my baby is 14 months old and has been having colds and earinfections since she was 4 months old, my dr sent me to an xray and we found out that her adenoids are 70% blown up thats why she breaths weird , snores and keeps getting sick he also told me to give a small treatment for about 8- 12 weeks like spray her nose twice a day and give her a powder medicine in her juice, my question is what if it doesnt help? will i have to operate her? is it dangerous ? or maybe it will help this small procedure?January 7, 2010 5:44 am at 5:44 am #671669oomisParticipant
You should follow the doc’s advice, but ALSO take your baby to a pediatric ENT specialist. An ear, nose and throat doc who specializes in children’s conditions, can best advise you as to whether or not she needs an operation. If you are not satisfied with what is told to you, get another opinion, but go to someone who specializes in this field with children. They will have more experience and expertise than a regular ENT.
If this were my child or granddaughter, I persoanlly would not wait the 8-12 weeks with her suffering like that. I would want to get her checked ASAP, especially when the breathing is affected to the point that the baby is snoring. All potential surgery on a baby sounds scary to us, but if it becomes necessary (and it may not be), then you look for an excellent doc and do what has to be done. I would try calling ECHO for a recommendation for a doctor. Hatzlacha rabba, may she have a refuah shelaima without the need for further intervention.January 7, 2010 5:55 am at 5:55 am #671670bombmaniacParticipant

OOMIS1105 IS CORRECT IN GIVING YOU ADVICE TO SEE AN ENT PEDIATRIC SPECIALIST.
My granddaughter had one ear infection after another till it started to affect her hearing badly. She had to be operated on and she is now B’H fine. Get 2 opinions if necessary but make sure they are the top DRS in ENT pediatrics. Do not wait, call echo and go NOW! Refuah shelamah be karov and much nachat!
