After Your Child is Home

Once your child is home from the PE tube surgery, helpful tips include:

  • Check on them every few hours for two or three days
  • If your child cannot be consoled because of discomfort, or if you believe the medications aren’t working properly, or a rash or allergic reaction develops, contact your healthcare provider immediately. The medications may need to be changed or discontinued.
  • Never give your child old, expired medications or someone else’s medication, and
  • Always properly dispose of unused prescription medications promptly. Most military medical treatment facilities have drop-off boxes to properly dispose of old or expired prescription medications. If you have questions, contact your medical treatment facility.
