Quoting Buzz and Almond Joys momm:" For most its fairly easy. There is pain but keep up on the meds and you'll be fine."
Quoting J+D=4:" my son had this done (along with tubes) when he was 3 1/2. recovery was about a week, maybe longer. he basically lived off ice cream and non-red popsicles for a while."
Quoting green mama☮:" So he really didn't want to eat? That's the part that scares me the most. How long until he was on normal foods again?"
Quoting Douchebag McFricknugget:" All I can tell you is that DH had his tonsils out in Feb. and recovery was absolute hell for him. He ... [snip!] ... five and a week later she was totally back to normal. I would just go ahead and get it out-of-the-way for him if I were you."
Quoting J+D=4:" he wanted to eat, but knew it would hurt. after that first week, he was eating more soft foods, and back on his normal diet after about 2-3 weeks."

Quoting green mama☮:" See, she said they normally prescribe Tylenol with codeine but R can't throw up due to previous stomach ... [snip!] ... to stay in the hospital that long? She told me it's outpatient procedure and just at a little surgery center in our city."
Quoting J+D=4:" during the first 3 days I think(?) he cant have dairy I believe, so just popsicles.. but then he can have ice cream/yogurt. make sure to ask about the dairy thing..."
Quoting J+D=4:" my son's was outpatient. he went in at around 7 that morning and was home by lunch.. maybe even earlier. I know they made him stay there for observation for a little bit."
