    Mt daughter has had this surgery at 4 and a half years old (almong with some other things done at the same time and bounced back so quickly, she was eating just 4 hours post op, was home the next day and off all pain meds by 5 days. She needed to stay of school for close to 2 weeks but only because of the risk of her getting an infection. Your right, your not lying to her, she will do just fine I am sure, take lots of things to the hospital for her to do while you wait to keep her mind off whats to come and some special things for her to have after. Good luck although I am sure you don't need it!

    I had these as at your age - just go to docs as if you leave it could get worse . Far better to juts have the medication to get rid of them :)
