before and after adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy

Published May 1, 2015 by Caitlin Rose


This sound was recorded two months before Kt was due her op with respected ENT Specialist Mr Daniel Tweedie. As you can hear, she has very laboured breathing. This results not only in the desperate sucking noise you can hear, but also daytime tiredness,irascibility, snoring and probable appetite loss – never mind the parents’ constant worry, monitoring, or how it might be affecting her schooling etc.


This one was taken a few moments ago. Kt’s just had her adenoidectomy / tonsillectomy performed by Mr Tweedie at the Cromwell Hospital London. Turn the volume up… I can’t hear a thing either ☺, so much so I now keep checking all’s well!!!

Thank you Mr Tweedie and all of you for your well wishes. x
