If my little man gets another ear infection the Ped said A.J will be referred to a ENT doctor and he will be a prime candidate for tubes to be put into his ears.. He's had 4 ear infections so far and has been on Zithromax, Omnicef, Amoxicillin, and now Augmentin.
My co-worker was telling me her experience when her son got tubes.. She was able to go into the OR room and put him on the table and was there when they put him under sedation. As she was telling me her story, I was starting to cry and was picturing me putting A.J on the table and then seeing him get another IV started on him.. But I know in the end, A.J will be alot happier with them..
I'm just curious on your experience.. Did the procedure go well? Did you bring him into the OR room? Did the tubes ever fall out to early?
Aww I can imagine that it's hard to think of your baby undergoing any type of surgery. I know quite a few people who have had to take their kids for ear tubes and most of them have said it made a huge difference and really helped so even though it's hard it might be worth it.
I'm sorry you have to face that though and I don't blame you for being worried.
I agree with Susan and Momma Ducks it does make the child happier.
Breana had 4 or 5 when she was a baby but they didn't put tubes in her ears cause they say the tubs go straight back to the ear for her nose. Cause every time her nose got stuffy she got an ear infection but she seems fine now.
My son has had 4 sets... He now has a more permanent set that will have to be removed when the doctor is ready for them too.
Each time it wasn't bad they gave him a loopy med that made him really tired and then the nurse carried him back. When he only got tubes (3 of the times he had others things like a T&A, a FESS and biopsies) it only took around 30 minutes until we were allowed to be in recovery with him.
This last set which has been in in the longest at 8 months is really helping but I am not sure if it is all the ear tubes as much as the FESS too. (Sinus widening)
It wasn't has bad as I imagined it would be but anything is scary when it is your child going under. HUGS and good luck.
