Let us know the out come ..my kids and myself were all really well after they removed them ,I believe its a simple procedure now ..
thank u for that I never actually thought that the tonsils could be causing more problems. But in theory it makes much sense! She has a very sore throat today and ive been checking for more mouth sores but there none. Will mention this on friday to her doctor, thanks again
Then I would insist they look further at the tonsil problem , swollen can be very painful and the child suffers,in my opinion the swollen glands are part of this so pursue it, I know that nowadays they do not like to remove tonsils and I am sure they have good reason ,I do know once they are removed the child's health really improves. but that's just my opinion,I was one of those children to have them removed at age 8 years old, I also had three of my children who had them removed.... worth checking out ..
hi, thanks for your reply. We havnt an appointment yet for the mri, her consultant has reffered her for one. However we have been to see her consultant today after I telephoned her expressing my concerns. She had a very good all over check and she thinks shes pretty certain its a virus ontop of virus on top of infection thing :(. But has said if she deteriorates then we must take her to a&e. She confirmed tonsils very swollen but no infection. Her tonsils have been swollen now since the EBV virus and havnt gotten any smaller.She has also lost alot of weight since last visit (4 weeks ago) but that could be down to her not eating whilst being unwell.
I am sorry I absolutely understand you worry ..one thing came to me reading your post Tonsils ..tonsillitis can be really nasty and can cause the symptoms you describe here you say they have shown to be swollen .I expect she has a bad sore throat aswell.There is no way of telling you anything about cancer but I can understand why it would come to mind, the further testing will find results for that if there are any .Not certain if tonsils have anything to do with the precocious puberty.The EBV would have made her feel unwell for a good part of this so you may have been dealing with a couple of different infections When is she due to have the mri ?.
