Q : My son is suffering from tonsils and frequently have throat pain. He gets fever too and it will reduce temporarily with medicines. He is short and thin. Will he grow tall if operated for tonsils?
Ans: There is no relation between growing tall and tonsils operation. If he is suffering from throat pain due to tonsils frequently and doctors adviced operation,it is better to go ahead. Some parents go ahead with tonsils operation if their kids are short thinking that they grow tall. Generally due to tonsils,people cannot eat due to pain. After operation it will be solved and they start eating well. Consult your doctor and follow his advice.
