    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. :(

    In First Grade

    Where Are My Tonsils Now?

    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...

    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...
