If you are looking for some encouragement before your child's scheduled adenoidectomy (removal of adenoids) and/or tonsillectomy (full or partial removal of tonsils), I hear you. I have been there and the surgery was the best thing we have ever done for our son. The sleep apnea is gone, his snoring is gone, his speech is so much clearer and my son is happier than ever. Good luck.
Adenoids are aggregatesof lymphoid tissue behind the nose and it contribute to the Waldeyer's ring (lymphoid tissue links along the throat and nasopharynx). This lesion is very common in paediatric age group and can becomes significantly enlarged to cause upper respiratory tract obstruction. Children can present with mouth breathing, snoring, and impaired hearing. Related ENT problems to this lesion include snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSA), postnasal drips, persistent glue ear, acute otitis media, or sinusitis. There is chance for spontaneous shrinkage as the child reaching adolescent years. In symptomatic cases it can be removed either singly or in combination with tonsillectomy. Nasal endoscopy is necessary as this part is not readily visualized using anterior rhinoscopy technique. This video shows an uninfected adenoids of moderate size.
