Next time docs tell me an operation has low risks I’ll be sure to still take that risk seriously. My little 3year old Bub had tonsil and Adnoied surgery which is very common surgery with our surgeon telling us they do about 50 a week. As with all ops there is always risks involved but we were told that risk of bleeding and infection is extremely low (5%) and I hate to admit it, I brushed it off but unfortunately Within 5 days of being home and hubby and I thinking his on the mend he had sever bleeding and was rushed to hospital and underwent emergency surgery. Thank goodness he is now 2 weeks post op and looks like his now on the mend but the next time doctors tell me about the low risks involved, I’ll make I take them seriously and be prepared.
