    I just noticed my tonsil grew back

    and my parents don't believe me. They think I'm making it up, even though you can see them now. I hate my life so much.

    No Way!

    I didn't think that was possible! I never had to have that doone, thank God. Nor my appendix. Eek! I did have all my wisdom teeth removed at once though, and didn't mind it. I had an I.V. drip and pain pills after. The novocaine was annoying though afterwards.

    Me Too

    Only one of mine has grown back and only about half the size it was before.  But get this: I only had them taken out about 5 years ago. I remember the waver said there was a chance they could grow back, but it seems unfair.
