:confused: I have a 2 year old little girl who has not been well for nearly six months. After going to countless doctors, I finally was able to convince a local paediatrician to perform a CT scan which unveiled fluid build up predominantly in her right ear. A nasendoscopy and bilateral insertion of grommets was performed. The transformation in her was almost instant; she was back to her old self.
She was happy and without pain and discomfort for 5 days and then her symptoms returned. She was miserable again. After further investigation, a sleeping test revealed that she had sleep apnoea. As a result my daughter had her tonsils and adenoids removed.
Months have gone by now and she is still not happy. She is in constant pain and discomfort (eminating from the head region as she is always swiping at her ears and nose), off balance, losing weight and I have a feeling she cannot hear well. (Three hearing tests have found results to be inconclusive). I’m told that there is no way that there could be further fluid build up, but I’m not so sure. As I have mentioned, her balance is terrible.
My daughter had a great deal of relief for a short period of time after her grommets were inserted (a lot of fluid was released during the procedure) and I feel that the answer lies there. If anyone has any suggestions or experiences they would like to share, I would love to hear from you as I’m getting really desperate now.
