Hi, and thanks in advance to all who take the time to read this.
My 6 year old son has suffered from tonsilitis since he was 3 years old. He has had 3 Infections this year already and is missing alot of school. Doctor refuses to give me a referal to an ENT specialist as he says my son is too young to have his tonsils removed.
My main question has to do with my sons weight and size, he is really under weight and basicly failing to thrive, you could play music on his ribs, although he eats like you wouldn't believe, I was just wondering if his weight/size issues could have anything to do with his tonsilitis or could there be something else going on??
He takes multi-vitamins daily and pro-biotics when on anti-biotics, his BM's are normal and has no other healths issues appart from nose bleeds from a broken capilary? which have now settled from use of a cream.
If anyone has ideas or even any suggestion on how I can get my son to gain weight it would be appreciated.
