My 2 year old needs have tonsils removed
I brought my 2 year old daughter to a thoat, nose, and ear specialist because of her large tonsils and snoring.  The doctor told me that he prefers my daugher to have her tonsils removed. I'm just really scared that she has to go through surgery at a age 2 (30 months). Her pediatrican said to wait till she's at least 3.   Is 2 years old too young to go through surgery? I'm just confuse on who to believe? What will happen if she keeps the large tonsils?
