Some friends of mine had their daughter's tonsils and adenoids removed about 2 months ago. The girl snored a lot, was sick almost constantly, and had ongoing speech issues due to the enlarged adenoids. The surgery went well and she took about a week to recover. I have seen her several times since the surgery and she is just 1000 times better. Her mom also tried many other paths before deciding on surgery, but it made such a huge difference she wishes she'd done it sooner.
