Hello I am an adult considering a tonsillectomy to rid myself of tonsil stones for good. I have small tonsils with holes and crevices that food gets stuck in. I have to pick the calcified gunk out, which exacerbates the situation as it enlarges the holes.

I was just wondering if my recovery will be somewhat alleviated by the fact that my tonsils are small. My thought process is that since I am only removing a small chunk of flesh (compared to most tonsillectomy patients), the recovery will be more forgiving. It would also be a possible explanation as to why children recover faster, because their tonsils are not as large. I know I should've asked my ENT but it honestly didn't cross my mind until I got home :/ Can anyone share some insight?

Thank you in advance :)
