Adenoids out, uh oh!

My 7 year old son has just received his appointment to have his adenoids out in two weeks time and I was wondering does anyone know if I am able to still go down to theater with him as I will be 33 weeks pregnant by then?

Obviously, Im a tad worried about this xxx

Most childrens surgical units let mums stay in the aneasthetic room until their child is asleep and then be waiting in the recovery room for when they wake up. There is nothing in there that will be harmful to you or your baby. OK you might take up a fair bit of room, but I'm sure you and he will be fine.

My DS had his tonsils and adenoids out when I was heavily pg with DD - like Mrs J said I was able to go down to the aneasthetic room with him until he was out cold (which is not nice), then I sat in his room until they called me when he was in recovery so I was there when he woke up. I stayed overnight in hosp with him and slept in his bed which was a squash but he just wanted to be cuddled.

Thanks ladies,

That really is a weight off my mind. My husbands unable to get a day off work so will have to attempt this on my own unfortunately.

Not worried now anyway, I am sure he will be fine. He's looking forward to lots of ice cream and a very special treat from us that we have promised him. Thats ds, not my husband :snigger:

Thanks again.

HI Donna, when is this op? My ds had tonsils out when he was 3 - they thought about taking our his adenoids - i wish they had as he and my dh have terrible trouble with them. He will be ok - it is def very hard for the parent - but they are used to doing this and it is very routine for them. Thinking of you though xxx

Sorry, only just seen this thread! I work on a short stay ward, where adenoidectomies are one of our main procedure's, and pg Mum's are able to go to the anaesthetic room.

Not that it makes any easier for you as a parent, as it will be emotional for you, and of course you will worry, but from a recovery point of view, the children seem to recover very well from the op, and are soon playing/eating/drinking again, and after a few hours, often look as if they haven't even had an op that day!!

Also, you should see a member of the surgical team, and the anaesthetist beforehand, and have a chance to ask all the questions you would like answered.
The nurse caring for your son, should also be able to go through alot of info with you, and again help with questions/concerns.

Hope all goes well with your DS op.

Thanks Compley,

With less than 24 hours to go I am getting a bit nervous so that message has really helped and with your first hand knowledge.

I will be glad when tomorrow is over and I am praying there are no complications. Will keep you all updated.

Thanks again for the reassurance.

If it is the first time he is going to have a GA it makes it extra daunting for you. Try, as far as possible, to stay calm and collected in front of your little man.

For me, being a nurse, I found it easy taking my little man into theatre (except for the screams when he wanted to have his bottle or breast as he could not understand that he needed to fast) - actually taking him in and waiting till he was out cold was not a problem for me and nor was the waiting till he came out. Having spoken with other mothers they say that the worst part is when your little one goes suddenly limp and "lifeless" - that is when it suddenly hits them and most mothers end up in tears so don't feel bad if that happens. Then they stress about if he will wake with pain. I'm not sure how it is done there but C was given some pretty heavy pain-killers as soon as he was out of theatre (he'd had tonsils adenoids and grommets done) and he slept for a few hours. We left for home at about 6 p.m (could have left earlier but I asked to remain till the rush-hour traffic had cleared) and he was fine.

All the best for tomorrow, Hun

2 Years ago approx he stuck little bit stones in his left ear and they went in so deep that he had to be put under GA to remove them! Little monkey!!

I took him down to theatre and when they put him under I realised that they usher you out pretty quick before they shove the tube thingy down his throat. Anyway, my legs went to jelly and the room spun for a couple of seconds whilst I was walking back to the ward, it was a very strange feeling which I have never felt before or since. It may have been a touch of shock, who knows. I soon recovered and just sat by his bed on the ward waiting for the call to say he was out. He didnt wake in any pain at all. I am so hoping that he doesnt tomorrow too.

When they have their adenoids out do they go in through the nostrils?

donz, they usually remove the adenoids by going in through the mouth, and up behind the palate.

He may have some pain relief before the op, or during the procedure. Alot of children I've looked after are quite comfortable afterwards.

I really hope all goes well tomorrow, and I know you're thinking of your son, and his health first and foremost, naturally, but don't forget to pack a few snacks/water etc for you, to have when he's having his op/for afterwards, as you need to keep your strength up, what with looking after him, and being heavily pg!

Hi all,

We have been home about 20 minutes and all did go well, thank you. When we first got there they made him put his p'j's on and then covered the three areas with magic cream so he wouldnt feel the canular and then wheeled him down about 2 hours later for the canular to go in and then for him to be put to sleep. It was all very quick - very impressive actually. The women were fab! I very nearly buckled and shed a tear on the way out of theatre but I held it together and I was very proud of myself.

I went and grabbed a quick sandwich and before I knew it he was back in his own private little room which was great! The bear he took to theatre also had a pretend canular in his arm which we thought was very funny. The anaesthetist done it.

Ds was a bit weepy and had some soreness in his throat and was crying until they took out his canular, it freaked him out a little. He sat up and had some toast and was soon ready to go home minus some adenoids which have plagued him for years so alls well that ends well.

Just very glad its all over.........................xx

Thanks ladies, bless you all,

Ds has been completely himself, it hasnt seemed to have phased him much at all which I am very pleased about of course.

His class at school have made him a massive 'Get Well Soon' card and all drawn little pictures in it. He loves it, its great! He's looking forward to going back to school now.
