How common is obstructive sleep apnea is children?

March 15th, 2011

We’ve never had a problem with her weight.She has been to a sleep study and had X-rays on her adnoids. She hes abnormally large tonsils and adnoids.She is set up for surgery I was just curious as to how common it is?

well.
i had my adnoids removed. and i dont know how common it is…
but getting the adnoids/tonsils removed is very common with my friends.
i think only two out of 20 have theirs still.
it is just a normal procedure.
and dont worry… afterwards the kid will be able to eat ice cream and popsicles all day… they will be happy…
