When my son was 6 years old he had his tonsils and adenoids removed. Before this surgery he was very skinny. Within months after his surgery he started to gain weight. Now he's 11 and extremely obese. Could this surgery be the root to the weight gain? He eats a health diet and gets exercise, but his weight is now effecting that as well and I am a concerned mom.
