Is getting adenoids removed very painful for a child?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not really

The question i would have is why have this surgery.
It may sound very weird to you when i tell you that bad diet can cause the nasal congestion that often precipitates this kind of unneceessary surgery. Adenoids and tonsilsare very important organs in the immune system. Tonsilectomy was stopped years ago in thepolio years because it encouraged polio to strike.
