My son is 22 months old and he is several tongue-tied. We only found out because I have a 4 month old and when he was first born they noticed he was tied, and asked if our other child was.
My 22 month old is having problems with speech, which he is working on with a speech therapist now. It is hard for him to eat, so he just throws food on the floor. We had to go back to baby food. He has lost weight, so now we have him on pedia-sure to help him get what he needs.
He is having the surgery on march 7th 2013.
I wanted to know what are the risks? My husband took him to the appointment and didn't ask ask any of the important questions. I couldn't get off work to go otherwise I would have asked all these questions.
They also found out my son is partial deaf in the left ear but they could not tell us how much of a loss it is. But they know it is not 100 percent because his ear drum was responding. Could this all be connected/related?
He will be retested for his hearing before and after surgery.
What are the odds that my next child will be tongue tied? How do you deal with your baby being so frustrated? Any tips are greatly appreciated.
