Q.

your opinion on pre-med

dear doc
as explained in my previous posts, my daughter is going for a tonsillectomy and adenoids removal on the 4th, due to her sleep apnoea. i have heard mixed opinions regarding pre-med. my daughter is extremely petrified of doctors, no idea why, she' s just always been, she screams blue murder and clings onto you. i am leaning towards giving her the pre-med as not to traumatise her too much. your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

The anaesthetist will probably want your little girl to have a premed. Discuss this with the anesthetist who is highly experienced in the use of premeds. You do not need to be concerned as your daughter will be in good and safe hands.
