My son was operated for adenoids exactly an year back when he was 4 years old. This was done as his nasal air passage was blocked to 80% and he had difficulty in breathing through nose.
Now after exactlly one year he suddenly developed the same problem and x ray shows 90% nasal air way blokage. Last time he was operated through mouth now doctor says that he would conduct nose endoscopy and also remove the adenoids in the process.
I would appreciate if you could help me answer the followings to put my mind at rest;
1. Does the adenoids grow back i.e do they re occur.
2. Can they re occur so fast till november end he was perfectly ok and by mid Dec,06 he has the same problem and now it is so sever that while breathing at night I can feel that he puts so much of an effort to breath that his entire body shakes with every breath he takes.
3. The doctor had even put a suction in the nose to rule out any liquid accumulation. Is there no way that one can say for sure that it is the adenoids reccurence.
I'll be obliged if you could mail me your suggestions and a phone number where I can call you for your opinion.
