I had very large tonsils, so large that I had practically no gag reflex. I had throat infections at least once a month, recurring tonsillitus, strep, ear infections and halitosis. Plus those disgusting little greenish stone things. Finally after dealing with this for 20 years I had them removed. It's been three years without strep, throat infections, bad breath or ear infections. Well worth it, though the pain of recovery was worse than my cs! They did a test of the bacterias in the tissue and found all sorts of things, including necrotic tissue and bacteria that is usually found in decaying teeth (though I have no diseased teeth). YUCK!!! I believe in natural healing, but in this circumstance the surgery was the best thing for me. I've never regretted it.
