I was told today that I will have my tonsils removed within the next month or two.
I have had so many tonsil infections that it is time to get rid of the problem for one and for all. I was wondering if anyone here have had their tonsil removed? How was the experience? Do you regret you had the surgery or not? Is the recovery as hard as they say?
My mom had a tonsillectomy 40 years ago
I hope they have improved their precedures. She says they separated her lower jaw from her uper jaw bone in order to have better access into her throat. She says that was the most painful part of the recovery. I forgot to ask my ENT doctor if they still perform the surgery in that way. I guess I was too busy imagining a new life without tonsils.
I will ask that later, but for now if anyone knows about this I will be more than happy to read your posts
