Topic: Can you play oboe after a tonsillectomy/adnoidectomy??
My 15 year old son is a fifth year oboist and had recent surgery. When he blows into the reed, airs comes out of his nose, he has mised a concert and a festival so far at his school. The nurse said it was due to his adnoid removal. Will this heal or is the opening permanent? Has anyone had any experience with this situation? We are questioning the necessity of his surgery at this point. It has been about four weeks and the doctor's office hasn't been much help. Please help and forgive me for spelling andnoid incorrectly.
