A tonsillectomy to relieve sleep apnea?
Yes. My son (who unlike this poor soul is very thin) snores so badly so I did some quick Internet research on childhood sleep apnea. As it turns out, tonsil and adenoid removal is the first protocol. I was shocked that a c-pap mask was step number two if the surgery fails to cure the problem. Why would docs risk anesthetize somebody so small (increased risks) and then cut things out of them?
