    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...

    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. :(
