... The tonsillectomy got rid of my diseased tonsils, but it seems like it didn't cure my illness as a whole. ... (0 replies)
... OMG, I'm sorry this is so old but I'm going to answser just in case someone else needs this info. I also had my tonsils out due to tonsil stones and now 3 years later I have the same problem, just the stones lodge in the back of my throat / in and or around my sinus's where I cant see them or dislodge them. Same feeling, smell, symptoms, everything. My tonsilectomy did help... (3 replies)

... For long time after the tonsillectomy I kind of lost my hope since it didn't cure my bad breath problem after 1months good days. ... (2 replies)
... I would assume that only a full tonsillectomy will fully get rid of your symptoms. If the crypts are there, the tonsil stones will develop..anytime it swells from tonsillitis symptoms the crypts get bigger. ... (2 replies)
... Hi everyone I am a 23 year old female. A few months ago I noticed by right tonsil is huge. I dont know how long it has been like this. It hasnt grown at all and I have no other symptoms. None the less it has me very worried. Whenever I read anything online it says tonsil cancer or lymphoma. I have been seeing an ENT who prescribed a 2 week course of antibiotics. I also had a...

... Hello, I am a 26 year old M who has always had really enlarged tonsils, and recently they became too bothersome (i.e. choking me at night as I slept every 20 or so minutes) and decided to go along with a tonsillectomy. That was 12 days ago. I was told it was a 10ish day recovery and I should start feeling better around then, and I did. By day 9 I was totally off my pain... (2 replies)
... This is the first time I came across this site and have found a lot of useful info re tonsillectomy in adults. ... (2 replies)
... Thanks for the advice on the fever part. That makes sense. I actually had the follow up on day 7 because my doctor accidentally hit a CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) leak he wanted to see me sooner. My next follow up is in 3-4 weeks. (7 replies)
... I wouldn't stress over it just yet. Everyone's recovery is different, but at 13 days many people still have a fair amount of pain. I only started eating anything solid at day 12 and still had lots of pain at that point. I also had A LOT more pain on the right side of my throat where as the other side barely hurt at all at that point. For me, it was because my right tonsil... (7 replies)
... I had my surgery last week on the 23rd of Febuary, the reason for the surgery was a high sleep apnea index. Also only being 30 didnt want to sleep with a Cpap machine. The surgery itself was no problem, woke up with just an almighty dry throat. Was a bit tight obvisouly but eventually starting getting fluids down there and its started to feel a lot better. Everything was... (0 replies)
... 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)
... What symptoms made you before you get rid of tonsils? ... (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...

... Leahley I was taking ibuprofen in the beginning. The worry with it is that when the scabs come off there is some bleeding and ib thins your blood. Check with your doc, but I take it once and a while and I am on day 10 I think. I thought the IB was really effective. Just make sure it doesn't also have tylenol in it as well if ur taking the Lortab. Excedrin is my fav... (15 replies)
... And when I got sick it was always the tonsils. If it wasn't strep throat it was just some infection that would leave my tonsils inflamed along with having cold symptoms and whatnot. Point is, every time I got sick the tonsils were ALWAYS swollen and gross. ... (27 replies)
My Tonsillectomy
Apr 24, 2010
... Hi Wallaj - Today is day 10 Post Op for me, and this has been the first day I have seen any light at the end of the proverbial tunnel! Am I out of pain?? Nope...not by a long shot, but the painkillers have really helped (whereas initially, and up until today, had only taken the very outside edge off the pain). In fact, to give you some idea of the enomity of the pain, I... (18 replies)
