"Stay ahead of the pain"

Child (5-12 years)

As a Mom, I read your tip sheet with interest to prepare for my daughter’s tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy. The biggest take away being to stay ahead of the pain. When we received her surgery date in September, we had a plan. We were vigilant in her post-op recovery to setting up a pain med schedule alternating between Advil and Tylenol. I wanted you to know that this was a valuable campaign- one which I shared with others. Advice really helped and post-op recovery was a breeze!
