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.

Hi! I'm 17 years old girl and I need to go to tonsillectomy next week. My friend told me that it's nothing dangerous but I'm still scared. He also told me that I will lose taste for a few months. Is it true that all food will be taste funny after tonsillectomy?

I am 5 weeks post op tonsillectomy. The surgery and recovery was not so bad especially compared to the horror stories I read around the internet. My main issue is that the anatomy has changed in my mouth and it is noticeable. Constantly noticeable. The tissues lateral to the uvula all seem to sit...

Is it O.K. if my son doesn't want to eat after having his tonsils and adnoids removed 5 days ago. Is vomiting normal? How long will he have a sore throat?
