Adenoids enlargement

This is asking for my daughter age 7.5 yrs that she breaths by mouth during sleeping and snoring sometimes.X-ray was done by ENT doctor on may 2015 showing significant obstruction to nasopharynx .Doctors suggest to go for adenoidectomy but we did not and treated with ayurvedic medicines and now on repeat X-ray in June 2016 showing some regression and now mouth breathing only when she is having running nose so we should go for surgery or not.

Size is not the only problem with persistent adenoids beyond 5 years of age....the germs which colonise them, generate a shield of biofilms and cannot be destroyed with even most powerful antibiotics and pose a grave risk to your child's vital organs like heart & kidneys! The adenoids are practically a ticking timebomb waiting to explode! ADENOIDECTOMY IS THE ONLY SOLUTION TO DEFUSE THE PROBLEM!
