... I got my tonsils out when I was 21...I'm now 38. I never thought about the connection, but to tell you the truth, I rarely EVER have any plugging in my lower sinuses. In fact, I can't even remember a time recently when I've had a stuffed up nice. Once in a great while, a little running of the nose, but no stuffing/plugging. Which is nice...while everyone is sitting around... (3 replies)

... 1. I had a sore throat for a month that wouldn't go away. Before that, no problems. ENT saw the size of my tonsils and thought they were gigantic, even though they weren't infected. He thought I probably had apnea.
2. I made the decision, he just recommended it. I asked for a sleep study first and sure enough, the study showed I had apnea.
3. Can't say I had a really bad... (3 replies)
