  • Q&A with Australian Health Practitioners

    How do I know how much pain is too much for my child?

    My son had his adenoids removed and grommets inserted in yesterday, he's in so much pain and the doctor told me that he wouldn't be in that much pain, and to give him panadol and no prescription drugs for him.

    Can you please tell me what to do? he has been fine all day today, until tonight, should I take him back to the hospital and get him checked over?

    Please help.

    It is unusual to have much pain after adenoidectomy and insertion and grommets.

    The safest thing to do is to contact the doctor who performed the operation, discuss it with him/ her and have your child reviewed by the operating doctor or at a major Pediatric Hospital
