I keep reading all the remarks from people in their early 20's who have had their tonsils out. I just had mine out on 3/10/08 and I am 56!

I have been experiencing a recurrence of white chunks on my tonsils. They often cause discomfort to me. Also their texture resembles the white part of a popcorn kernel. I wonder what those white chunks are caused by. Do they maybe indicate some serious illness?

Have read all the comments about loss of taste, bitterness in the mouth, no flavour to food etc. after removal of tonsils, and I am going through all this. It is horrible and depressing. I am 6 months post op and feel things are as bad as ever.
Is there anyone out there who has experienced this and...
