Tonsils Update

I finally went to see a Doctor today about my massive tonsils that have been bugging me since the beginning of December.

I went to the emergency department because I don’t have a Dr. here. What a great experience. I was out of there in less than an hour. The Dr. checked out my tonsils and said, yep, they are large. He said they are supposed to shrivel up when you are 18 years old and because mine didn’t they never will. So he made me an appointment with the ear/nose/throat surgeon who visits here so I can debate with him if I should have them surgically removed. The Dr. confirmed that it is a much harsher surgery when you aren’t a kid. He has had some patients spend extra days in the hospital because they can’t swallow so they stay on IV’s for longer.

Anyway, my appointment with specialist is on May 14th.
