Report Advice for upcoming tonsillectomy? in PANS / PANDAS (Lyme included) Posted May 21, 2014 DS16 will finally have his tonsils (and possible adenoids if they look bad) removed next Wednesday. He has a central IV line so he will be on IV Clindamycin before, during and after surgery. Doc will also prescribe IV fluids to be administered at home, so hydration will not be an issue. Lyme doc ordered culturing test for tonsils. Would love any advice on how to make this process run smoothly. He is gluten and dairy free so I will need to be creative with getting calories in him - and he needs the calories - he is 6'3" and 122 lbs. He already has trouble maintaining his weight and he is very picky about liquids - he only drinks water. He hates smoothies or any sweet liquid. Thanks in advance.
