    I had them out when I was young. I was feeling so sick and miserable afterwards. I was only eating yoghurt but even that hurt to swallow. I did not think I'd ever get better because it was taking so much time for me to recover. But then some of my sisters friends came over...

    Someone please tell me what's going on with my

    tonsils! I went to the doctor and they said it wasn't strep. I'm so irritated because I ALWAYS get strep or a sore throat and I'm always in pain and I just want them OUT. I'm in so much pain and I don't know what's going on. :(

    Footloose and Tonsil-free!

    I was only about seven when I had mine removed.  Before that, I'd had chronic tonsillitis.  I was off school every other week because I was so ill.  Therefore, my doctor made me have mine removed as soon as he could.  I also had the adenoids in my nose removed...

    When I was seven years old

    and in first grade, I had my tonsils taken out. I had sleep apnea and got strep throat often, and in class, I'd often be tired and hyper from not sleeping. So, I barely remember it. I was put to sleep (and I scented the mask with a Lip Smacker), and before I knew it, I woke up...

    In First Grade

    I was very prone to tonsillitis as a child.  I always seemed to have it on the holidays, too.  I remember one bout on Christmas Eve, with family over.  I began to shake with fever and excused myself from the dinner table to curl up into a ball on the sofa near the...
