Tonsillectomy
Hi all,

I am thinkg of a surgery of tonsils because I usually got tonsillitis and stinky white balls (tonsil stones) in my throat and tonsils.  So I am very nervous for that decision, I have asked several questions for my doctor and he says "you need a tonsillectomy and nasal cauterization because of your nasal turbinates and Tonsilloliths". I would like if someone there knows if after surgery my tonsil stones will really desappear and I will be able to breath normally. Sorry if I am so straightforward but I am very nervous because I have heard people after that surgery has suffered wording & nasal problems. thanks

Emmanuel

I would check out the ear, nose & throat forum.......good luck.  I have the same thing......that **** in my throat.......i would advise against the ectomy, unless it is causing chronic illness.  Although, tonsillectomy has come a long way since my childhood days.....I think they do it by laser now.....not sure, but, anyhow......how old are you? and how long have you had the problem?  Good luck, and , check out the ear nose and throat fourm........

Nauty............
